Happy New Year!
Mon, Dec 5, 2016
I'm delighted to announce that I've started a new category in my shop - Aran Baby. These little hats are knit in baby-friendly soft yarn (the hats pictured are knit in Rowan All-Seasons Cotton (pale blue) and Noro Silk Garden (green). I'm knitting fast to try and get more colours available! Sizing at the moment is Newborn, 3-6 month and 6-9 month.

My friend commissioned me to knit her a Christmas Piano Runner. It was a most enjoyable knit; we worked together to come up with a unique design. The runner is knit in pure wool, with King Cole Cosmos yarn held with the wool for the cables. The metallic edging was knitted in as I went along, using Goldfingering yarn, from Twilleys of Stamford.

A nice soothing stitch pattern (for these uncertain times!) This is from a hat I'm working on. The stitch pattern is improvised.

I just finished this cosy hat yesterday: hooray for car journeys when I am not driving : )
It's knit in beautiful soft green wool; which unfortunately was a shade of green my camera really struggled to capture. And it's a lovely sunny day here too! (Maybe that was the problem - the camera has gotten used to overcast days in Ireland!)

Piano runner custom order, featuring sparkly sequins combined with traditional Aran wool. Parallel cables combine to intertwine in a cable of my own design : )
