~ I admit I'm one of the worst at this whole blogging and facebooking updating stuff. I'm sorry ....... I just enjoying the 'creating' side of ImagineKnits way better. I can't believe I haven't been here in over a year! 

I've been busy lately with the newly learnt crocheting and am loving it. I have a gorgeous dragon in the makings at the moment and plan to have him ready for the Encraftment Market next month. Hope to see you there ~

Most times I will be making something and somehow it's name will appear and attach itself to it but today, something strange happened ........ DaxiusZundelbat is clamouring to be created. The only trouble is that I have no idea what he is or what he looks like!

BruffDee BoWidgery


..... so what do you do when your little brother keeps stealing your Nonky Plonk? You ask your aunt to make him a BruffDee BoWidgery of course!

Many of you have asked about BruffDee BoWidgery and if he was ‘special’ and did he have a story. I didn’t know so I decided to ask him.

“BruffDee are you special, are you even a little bit magic, BruffDee BoWidgery do you have a story?”

Well he looked at me strangely, even a little bit slyly and said .....
“Shhhhh don’t you tell them, it’s all about feet!”

“Ahhhh, feet ”  I said “yes I see ........ please, please won’t you tell me?”
I had to promise to the secret but I had crossed fingers behind my back. I’m sure he didn’t see me, if he had, I bet I’d have gotten a smack!

He stood looking at me, and shuffling his feet said ......
“It’s me footsies, me feet, and their very big toes. I mean look at me toes, they’re even bigger than your nose!”

“Hmmm, I see” I said glancing down at his feet, and yes they were big, even huge you could say. And those toes ....... yup, way bigger than my nose.

“So BruffDee” I said smiling “are your feet magic, can they do magic tricks?”
And BruffDee just looked at me and said
“Pffffft, don’t be so thick! They’re cold, not magic you twit ....... “

I could see that being a problem so said ......
“How about wearing shoes?”

Well BruffDee just looked at me and sighing quietly said .......
“I can’t find shoes that fit them or even a sock, I find some, I try them but I never have any luck”

So now you know BruffDee’s story,
 and now when you’re asked ......

“where’s your other shoe, and........ have you lost another sock?”

You can say .......

“BruffDee he stole them, he has cold feet you see.
They’re under HIS bed!
I haven’t lost them .......honest ....... wasn't me.

Wobblin' Goblins


Are you snuggled right down, are you comfortable? I’ll tell you a story about the goblins that live high up in the trees.

Wobblin’ Goblins have long pointy ears and always wear hats made of leaves. A Goblin of course, is not at all like a Troll. Trolls are just grumpy old things, full of contempt and ohh, such a lot of greed. Still, I guess if we had to live in a dingy hole we’d be grumpy too, just like an old troll.

Wobblin’ Goblins are happy little things always laughing and singing, and they just love living in trees. Sometimes you might see them. If you look up, really high, right at the top of the tree, there’ll be a goblin. If it’s sunny you may have to squint up your eyes a bit, or even shade them with your hand, but they’ll be up there, using their tickly long fingers to stir up the wind wisps so they can hang on to the tippy top branches, and laugh as they take rides in the breeze.

The Wisps and the Goblins have so much fun. You can hear them playing all summer. ‘Whooooosh’ call the wind wisps as they rush through the leaves and the goblins hang on tight to their hats as they ride.

Deep in their holes the grumpy old Trolls start to grumble. They are tired of the sunshine and they just want to sleep.

“Enough of the Whooshing, we’ll permit no more fun.
It’s time for the winter, it’s time it begun!”

So the Wisps and the Goblins start to say goodbye and as it gets darker you may hear the Trolls getting grumpier. Their grumbles get louder. They are getting colder and they need to go to their beds.

The Goblins start tickling with their long tickly fingers and stir up the wind wisps who blow cold through the branches turning the green leaves to orange and brown and the Goblins start wobblin’ making them fall, all wrinkled and dry. Beneath the trees Trolls wait with big bags to collect them and drag them down into their holes.

Winter has come and the Wobblin’ Goblins have gone inside their houses to eat crumpets by the fire. Now all you can hear is the sound of Trolls snoring, asleep under great piles of leaves.

(so what does a Wobblin' Goblin really look like?)
