Kiki the Little Mermaid by Molly Ritchie
Kiki is a small, hand-knit mermaid by artist Molly Ritchie of Baddeck. Ritchie used hand-dyed 'Kidston Island' merino wool from Fleece Artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia to give this creature her colourful tail.
Molly Ritchie makes knitted and crocheted fantasy creatures including fairies, unicorns, dragons and mermaids. She also makes seahorses, crabs, fish and flying pig fridge magnets, as well as crocheted dreamcatchers, mandalas and bracelets. Ritchie is a member of the Baddeck Quilters Guild and her creations have appeared in their shows. Ritchie enjoys working with unusual and hand-dyed yarns.
