hugs for my feet - I made these heart socks ages ago and they are my first socks for this winter. The little heart on the top of the foot sits perfectly in the open bit of my birkenstock clogs
So a little while back I thought I want a frock - and looking around the shops gave me no joy. So I pulled out the japanese books I have been secretly collecting and picked a pattern
that is the easiest bit - then there is the desiphering, drafting, adding of seam allowance and then the cutting and sewing. Well actually this dress has 4 main pieces not counting some interfacing on the neck. So I made two. In one night - actually took very little time. I made the floral one and thought actually I'd wear a black one more so I cut out and made another right away.
this is the black one - which I am wearing today. It is linen with a bit of stretch in it. I am thinking of making another in a red linen next.
Another finished project that has been mulling over in my head for ages. Ishbel beret in zarina - love this pattern and the yarn. I am now keen to knit another Ishbel scarf.
as it is so dark the arty shots work best I think.....
My niece is getting a hooded vest for winter.
I have broken out the gorgeous Knitabulous yarn for a Ene's shawl
And I am test knitting Olatz written instructions - I realise that I really prefer charts after this. This is The Sanguine Gryphon skinny bugga in cow killer colourway. Love that name - Cow killer!!!
