Knitterly Arts Podcast #9: Dollhouse Menagerie

My favorite thing about knitting and crocheting is that it carries and sustains us through all the seasons of our lives. Whether we knit through the actual seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, or whether we crochet through tough times as well as good, we are marking our days with the things we make. In this podcast I continue this theme with my spring knits, the all-season sock knitting on my needles, patterns I’m considering knitting next, as well as recent drawings marking the days of Lent.

I also introduce the menagerie that lives in my desk-top dollhouse. I love to knit or crochet small creatures, such as Arne & Carlos’ mouse pattern from which I knitted two mice and named them Mortimer and Millicent. Many other friends who live in the Castle are introduced, as well as two bunnies made from a simple knitted or crocheted square!
