Deflated monsters

Deep sigh. Still waiting on Cambodia Post to deliver two parcels. One from Canada from my sister, full of goodies I need to start a sweater for Yeng and a sweater for me. The other, full of plastic eyes so Cambodia Knits can finally get on the road to profitability and out of the red. […]

Bunnies!

So our first project in the round was the Bunny Nuggets recipe from Rebecca Danger and below are some photos of the results. We started on 6 mm needles to get a feel for knitting on DPNs (double pointed needles for non-knitters) and I think with a bit more practice, they’ll be ready for the […]

The handsome knitter

We’re getting stuffed!

I finally located some material suitable for stuffing. Well, I always knew about it but was hesitant to use it for our stuffed toys because I’m not sure how ‘fluffy’ it stays over time or how it will wash. I originally wanted to use polyester toy stuffing, but its impossible to get new here. What […]
