Lots and Lots

I have a whole heap of finished project photos to upload. I gave myself two weeks to get everything outstanding done before going back to design work. Nearly made it. Got one sweater not finished but have designed and knitted up a new project for the next issue of instead, so can only be good. I will also finally have the long awaited photos of my butterfly dress - every time I photographed this dress something was wrong with the images. Finally they seem ok.

I've got some lovely yarn from Shilasdair for my christmas project and some gorgeous fabric for my 1950's dress to go with my angora hearts cardigan (See for free pattern). Again, photos to follow.

All in all, there's probably going to be about half a dozen posts in two days so bear with me...

Happy holidays everyone
for now

New designs from

This is angora hearts cardigan featured on the front cover of Its knitted in anny blatt angora super with a double knit weight shaw collar, welt and cuffs in a two colour rib. The cardigan is very easy to knit and suits most shapes. I'm quite a shapely lady and find it very flattering. It makes you feel like a 50's starlet. The pattern is available FREE on
