Border Print Skirt

Border Print Skirt

Last week one of my best friends came to visit.  My poor husband had 4 days of not being able to get a word in edgeways! We had a lovely day on Thursday browsing round Manchester’s Northern Quarter and grabbing some lunch in Piccadilly Garden’s.  We also visited one of my favourite fabric and craft…

Cute and fun

Scalloped Edged Hat

I have decided to start stash busting and make some space to buy new wool.  (My husband only knows about the stash busting part so far…) These two hats used up the leftover heather I had from my Nanny’s diamond scarf (so soft!) and most of a ball of cream I also had lying around. …

Triangular Cowl

I’ve made a few of these multi-yarn cowls recently so wanted to go for something a bit different.  I made this as a Christmas gift for my brother (who writes awesome music, check it out on youtube here).  I like the texture of the post stitches and the colour combination.

Chained Scarf with Picot Edging

Buttonhole Sarong Maxi Skirt

I actually made this a while ago, but I’ve had to wait for a gap in the rain to get some photos before I could post it! I bought this sarong while on holiday and I really love the colours and geometric print.  It’s actually pomegranates with a border around.  I wanted to wear it…
