New autumn/winter collection

Once again we had a great autumn/winter collection. I included a number of new designs including the brown tweed scarf, slouch hat, arm warmers and the scarf with the pockets.

The designs have been so popular so far and bloggers especially have seemed to love it. It all makes it worth while the hours and hours of planning the designs hand knitting them all, yes I said HAND knitting them, no machines used here!

I would like to give a massive thanks to the great models I used this time and James Neale of James Neale photography for another great shoot.

Now time to plan for the next one ……

Check it all out here Peggy May

Christmas Projects

Christmas is edging closer each day and of course as always I always leave it to the last minute to complete my christmas knitting. Every year I say the same thing ‘I will be more organised this year and have everything knitted by November ready for christmas’ yeah right! It never happens

I have completed a couple of pairs of socks though and they will be put in gift boxes for presents

Another present I am making is my son a rainbow crochet blanket. When I started this I did not realise how long this was going to take!

I am using up loads of dk yarn though which is always a good thing

I have a few more projects I would like to get done before christmas including hot water bottle covers like this one

Which I will write up the pattern for too as it’s great if you are new to cables and it’s so easy to do.

I will post more pictures of my progress of the rest of my christmas knitting as I do it.

Also don’t forget the date today is 11/12/13 a very unforgettable day for me and my family now due to some personal reasons.
