Of Knights and Ninjas


I have managed to wrestle the iPad from the kid's grubby mitts for long enough to actually write a post!

[I am totally looking forward to a return to routine. Don't get me wrong, I love the holidays- but things just get a little, well, bonkers.]

Wait a sec.... What's that? I can hear the sound of marching feet...

Hey! It's the crochet Korknisse Knights, or Korknightsse, as they like to call themselves.

Hello, fellas! How are you?

What, you haven't got any weapons yet? Well, be careful, won't you?

But who's that?

Watch out, Korknightsse! Behind you...

.... it's the Korknisse NINJAs!

They're a deadly and dastardly duo..

You naughty little blighters.

Ok, so the knights and ninjas are free patterns from the lovely Lucy Ravenscar's blog. The knights were made for my nephew, who is doing something 'knight-ish' at school in Sept and the Ninjas for my son, who has demanded 'hundreds more'.

Good excuse to drink more wine, methinks.

Mwaaa haaaaa haaaaa!

Oh, and the crochet cushion cover (pattern from here) is coming along nicely...

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!




  1. Hilarious, I love them. Your grannies are coming along nicely too.

  2. I can see why he wants hundreds more, I see a Ninja army appearing soon, and more wine? Why that is a huge bonus!
    Happy Weekend,

  3. Great idea!!!! i didn't know what to do with them!'s celebrate with a red red wine.....

  4. Great ninjas, can they do all that fighting while flying through the air like the matrix....I'm waiting for the star wars figurines middle boy is sooo into star wars, I really should give them a go, I think I may just drink lots of champagne to achieve my goal, better physique!

  5. Lovely crochet circles, looking forward to seeing the finished product. Unlike you, I really don't want the holidays to end as that means my return to work!
