Six word Saturday

Has anyone dropped a stitch lately?

On the bleakest of Winter days, I still couldn’t resist a little yarn bombing, this time at Saltholme Nature Reserve.

The details are amazing, aren’t they?  I couldn’t see a dropped stitch anywhere.  I had to keep on the move too, because it was SO cold!

It wouldn’t be complete without a tea party, would it?  (Hover over the smaller photos to see the captions, or click to view them in a gallery).  Have a great weekend, whatever the weather, and don’t forget to join Debbie with six words.




  1. Good morning !!! It is a clever way to express your creativity through the handmade goods!!! Thank you for sharing!! All they are cute !!!!!!!!!

  2. Some people are soooo clever I would be all dropped stitches and tangled wool. But loved the arty, crafty animals and things. How long do they stay on display?

  3. I tried to pick a favorite, but just couldn’t, Jo. I love, love, love these! It does look to have been a cold day, but I’m so glad you were able to stop and share them with us! Seems that this time there was a little suffering in your photographic art! 🙂

  4. It’s absolutely amazing! I really like it very much!
    A great idea! It was a lot of knitting by hand but the result is fantastic!
    I like all of them! Thank you for sharing with us.
    You have a wonderful night! ❤ ~~~~

  5. I loved, I loved so much, what a beautiful event and works, and photographs, I admire and all of them fascinated me. I just wished to be there too but how nice you share with us, Thank you dear Johanna, have a nice day and new week, Love, nia

  6. All very clever and humorous! I really enjoyed that. So colorful and cute!

    What will you do with all these small creatures that you have made? Will you donate them to a hospital for children with cancer? Decorate your house to create a yarnified zoo? Sell them at shows or craft faires?

    1. I’m not clever enough to have made any of them, Sheila. It was at a public event in a nature reserve. I suppose they might well donate them. It’s a niice idea 🙂 🙂

  7. Wow this was amazing, I couldn’t pick a favourite one. Thanks for sharing and hope it gets warmer soon where you are.

  8. Amazing what knitters can do. That dog is so realistic – although I wish he didn’t look noosed. Which reminds me: I’ve been knitting a jumper for my son for 4 years and all I have to show for it is two half sleeves. Get to it. NOW! You can have a bit of my heat, although it’s not too bad by the sea.

    1. Perhaps you should start on a front or back. 🙂 🙂 But then, maybe it’s not an essential in Australia. I love the collie and the robin, and that wading bird. Darn cool here, so thank you! 🙂

  9. oh my goodness- so crafty and artistic- wow…I am a quilter so have not dropped a stich nor lost a square…
    I cannot even imagine making these= my hats off to you!

  10. There is so much work in these delightful critters and they make a fun display. I love to crochet but I don’t know if my skills are this advanced. I’m pleased you braved the chill to go so you could share with us, Jo.

    1. I probably chose the coldest afternoon of the year, Carol. There’s absolutely no shelter and the kids were all bundled up. You could go into the bird hides, but the birds were all hiding. 🙂 🙂 I did love it, though.
