Venue 20 Worthing Artists Open Houses

Come and say hello to me and the knitted birds at Venue 20 of the Worthing Artists Open Houses trail! This fun and friendly house is open for its third year. Find art, illustration, textiles, and printmaking by 7 artists, and enjoy a cuppa and something to eat in the garden.

The Ashdown Road artists are Anna’s Drawing Room, hello DODO, John Bond, Ellie Bond, Julie Ingham, Sarah Edmonds, and me!

Venue 20 is at 39 Ashdown Road, Worthing BN11 1DF, and it’s open 11am-5pm 17th/18th June, 24th/25th June and 1st/2nd July. You can see (and buy!) my knitted birds, book and knit kits every weekend, and I’ll be there on 17th June (in the afternoon, time TBC), 25th June 1pm-5pm and 1st July 1pm-5pm.

Seagull knit kits!

Seagull knit kit

Here’s my first ever knit kit, Jeff the seagull! Each kit contains enough yarn, stuffing and notions to knit yourself 2 Jeffs, plus the knitting pattern, so you can make an inifinite number of Jeffs using your own DK once you’ve finished the kit. Each kit contains an exclusive Jeff button badge as well! Kits are £10 plus shipping, and they’re available from my Etsy shop or from Venue 20 of Worthing Artists Open Houses, during the open house event in June/July.

Let’s Knit blue tits!

Blue tits knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska

The knitting pattern for my blue tits is in issue 118 of Let’s Knit magazine – if you’ve got your hands on a copy of my book Knitted Birds, you’ll know that there’s a blue tit pattern in there, too. Well, these are a little bit different to the original, like a blue tit 2.0! They have a different shape, and the markings are all made with intarsia knitting rather than embroidery. Hope you enjoy making them!

Tropical parrots

Parrot knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska

Hands up, who’d like to knit a cuddly, colourful parrot? I’ve just added the pattern for this cute pair to my Etsy shop and Ravelry. They are nice, easy knit, flat on a pair of 4mm knitting needles. I used Stylecraft Special DK but you can use the DK yarn of your choice – they are a very colourful way to do a bit of stash busting!

Knitted nest and eggs

Knitted eggs and nest by Nicky Fijalkowska

Spring is in the air and it’s the time of year that I love knitting little nests and eggs – they make lovely spring decorations for your home, or you can substitute the knitted eggs for chocolate ones, and you have the perfect Easter treat!

If you’d like to knit a nest and eggs, the pattern is in my book Knitted Birds, published by Search Press. There may also be a nest or two in my Etsy shop if they haven’t flown off to a new home already (not that nests can fly, but you know what I mean).
