Knitting Champion

Knitty Nora, who once was the Knitting Champion of Kendal in 1953, is still very active in knitting circles and regularly donates all her finished items to a refuge for abandoned animals. These sad and neglected animals find great comfort in Nora's misshapen knits and her weird and wonderful colour combinations are most welcome to the chameleons.

So here is a snapshop of Nora in action, proudly displaying the Champion of Kendal 1953 trophy.

You too can have your very own Knitty Nora (with or without sparkly pink fluffly slippers) as she is available to buy right now. And to finish the scene, the trophy and coffee table have been added.  All available to buy from Doctor Digi!

  2. Fun card Ruth and perfect coloring! Love the Home Sweet Home sign and wonderful scene you created!

  3. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements.

    When I was a child nitty Nora was a completely different entity! Love this image, which you have coloured beautifully, it made me smile immediately, and reminds me of a few old codgers from my youth. I also like that you have made it into a picture.

    Good luck!
