Knit your own country cottage

I’m determined this week to get several projects finished that have been almost finished for a couple of weeks. First up is an idea I had ages ago, knitted and blocked quite a while back, but never quite found the oomph to take off the blocking mat, finish and write up. But finally I have. Β It’s another project for the DYC shop, Knit Your Own Country Cottage.

Apart from a couple of keyrings I need to write up, this is the last knitting kit I’m designing for the shop for a while. Hope you like it.

    1. Thank you. Glad you like it. It’s approximately 15x13x10cm (6″x5″x4″). I’m adding measurements to the web pages in the shop for kits that don’t have an obvious size, since someone commented the other day that the sheep was a lot bigger than they thought. πŸ™‚


  1. That is so cute! It would make a great paper weight if you could find a way to fill it with sand or something heavyish – I suppose just putting a bean bag or rice bag or two inside with the stuffing would do it too ….. I’m liking this idea…..

    1. Thank you. Ha! ha! Great minds think alike – or is it fools rarely differ? πŸ˜‰ I do suggest on the packaging it could be used as a doorstop or book end if it is weighted at the bottom and explain how to do this in the putting together instructions πŸ™‚ But I hadn’t thought of paperweight, so will go add that too – thanks for the suggestion πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you. It takes a lot longer than you’d think – well, actually you know about these things, so not you, but certainly before I started doing it, I didn’t realise having the idea and knitting it up are only 50% of the work to getting it in the shop πŸ™‚

    1. Wouldn’t that be a great project to get the whole village knitting their own houses. Not sure even our amazing vicar would knit the church, but I’m sure one of the church ladies would πŸ™‚ A friend has asked for one with a turret – we always used to joke that we would retire together to a castle, put our husbands in one turret and have the other three to ourselves πŸ™‚
