We have a fun crafty giveaway for all the knitters out there this week. Enter below for a chance to win the Lion toy knitting pattern (pictured above) from Mamma4earth‘s animal filled shop & bring a little bit of South African wildlife into your home!
I learned how to knit when I was 5 years old. My mom used to always be knitting and one day I asked her if she could show me how to knit and she did. She used to knit the most amazing treasures and was always willing to take the time to show me how to knit them too. I continued knitting through my teen years and then once I was married, I would knit for my husband Richard once in a while. When our children were born and we chose the homeschooling path, I realised how important it was to introduce natural toys into their life. I started knitting, gnomes, farm animals and decided that I would offer these eco-friendly toys to other families besides my own. That is how Mamma4earth was started, it has been an amazing journey since the very beginning, I have connected with the most wonderful people and have formed friendships across the globe. I am so inspired by animals, their grace of movement, their beauty. When I look at them and watch how they move, I see their form in stitches as a pattern in my mind, with decreases and increases becoming the shape of the animal that I am observing. When I knit and design a pattern, I like the pattern to resemble the original animal as closely as possible in its appearance, colour and texture. My inspiration stems from homeschooling my children and this amazing county where I live. South Africa is such a diverse nation with so much beauty that sparks one’s inspiration. The seasons flow through each year, rekindling the desire to create and form something new. My surroundings within this great country as well as it’s wildlife fuel my creativity…
