The Town House and Country House

I was having a tidy up, and found the beginnings of this house in a box of half finished items. It is knitted from my own pattern, Little Woollie House. I love the James C. Brett wool I used, which with its variations gives it a natural look. So I thought it was time to finish off this house - which is actually my favourite part.

I just like the whole process of just plodding along with my stitches, thinking "What colour should I use for the door?", "What shall I put at the ends of the house?"  Very gradually I add doors and windows, and then other bits, until it is complete. So when I began I had not planned to make one side of the house represent the country, and the other the town, that was just the way it turned out.  This house is for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Just a reminder that there is still plenty of time to join in my Ginx Woolly Linx party for October. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month.


  1. You always manage to knit the most amazing things!
    Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty link Party this week. Pinned!

  2. So cute. How nice you found that and were able to finish it up. Often, I find things separate from the pattern and them am totally lost. Yikes. Out blog walking today through my reading list and saw you name.

  3. That's so cute, it's nice to finish of something you started ages ago and 'lost' isn't it? Very satisfying :-)
