Meerkats and Star Trek!

Did I hit the jackpot of unique and wonderful with this shop find! Okay, I’m a big Star Trek fan, but you have to admit this is very creative and unusual knitting. Heather has recently opened a shop on Zibbet called NiftyKnits where she has an entire troupe of freestanding meerkats ready to be your best pal.

Looking for a superhero, a rock/film star, or a sports themed meerkat to give as a very special gift, she has you covered and is ready to accept any knitting challenge. She makes her own patterns so you won’t find these delightful creations anywhere else, and, understandably, her patterns are not for sale.

There is such a feeling of creative energy in her shop. She also makes several other designs like this striking spotted gecko. Heather is in the UK, but ships worldwide. You can also find her on Facebook. Pop in and explore all of her amazing creatures in this truly one-of-a-kind shop!


  1. Oh wow - thank you so much! I'm really enjoying the friendly atmosphere at Zibbet, and look forward to meeting more of you!

  2. The gecko is adorable. Great blog
