Knitted critters

I promised knitted critter so here they are :-)

As many of you know, I am a member of the Notts and District branch of the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. Which sounds very official but basically boils down to a good old chat and lots of fibre fun on the last Saturday of the month. Occasionally we get to meet other guilds and recently we mooched on up to Mansfield to take part in the Ashfield Guild Hospitality days and in amongst the usual lines of spinners and stalls were....... little knitted thingies!!

There was a farm.

complete with duck pond, fields and trees. The family were outside the house and the horses in the stables.

Sadly there was a bit of a blood bath later in the day when all the animals were found lying on their sides and the crocodiles had a decidedly evil look about them.look if you dare!!!
