Could this work do you think

f and f shrug

With more stitches in the coloured band it could, couldn’t it? My gray polystyrene model is probably a size 12 – and she just doesn’t feel it sits quite right.

The feather and fan section has been knitted in one piece with the sleeves joined by a 3 needle bind off and the lovely curves of the feather and fan stitch nestle together well. This wee shrug has just given me a great feather and fan hug.

The coloured section is knitted in the round on from the pink feather and fan section. I wasn’t thinking clearly enough about the number of stitches – so will continue working on this and keep you posted.

new design – bad photo

by on Jul.04, 2015, under Blog

I know that you have no idea what this is – the next photos will be great but will not be available until the piece is completed and I have my real live model – but I couldn’t wait to show where I am up to. This has been my birthday present to my self knitting this piece over the last 4 days.

test design

Best Beloved cooked all day yesterday for my birthday, he made pea and ham soup for today. He created it not with a bacon hock but with a pork hock. He added bacon bits, smoky paprika and so on to improve the soup flavour. He then created a pork curry for dinner and we will eat soup all day today should it be cold enough with his home made spelt bread.

Me – well I might just knit all day.

Poncho with fluro stripes

by on Jul.01, 2015, under Blog

Sometimes you do need grandchildren to clear your mind. My grandson, aged 12, told me I was daft as I called my large black poncho with stripes – “Rainbow Stripes”. You are daft he said – they are fluro stripes.

And silly me, I had even called it “poncho in black, blues, and pinks”.

Such clarity in such a boy.

Thank goodness.

And Claire love this poncho.
