Rowan Shingle

I've started the Shingle cardigan from Rowan's cotton tape collection.

A good friend of mine asked if I'd make her this, if she funded the yarn. :) I am desperately hoping this will turn out really nice for her.

Urban Fetching by Adrienne Vittadini

I spotted this sweater in Vogue knitting some time ago and it had been on my mind. I love items that are fairly simple, but with some inque detailing. This fits the bill with the interesting Aran detailing on the shoulder.

The yarn was lovely to work with. And the project was fun after working on all the lace recently. This one had big needles, chunky yarn, a lot of stocking stitch, with a little detail to keep it interesting. Very happy with the outcome - a very wearable sweater.

Alphabet Blanket by Debbie Bliss

This is the Debbie Bliss Alphabet Blanket that I've made for my boss's new granddaughter. I've had my eye on this pattern for some time and was looking for an excuse to make it. It's been quite an effort, but worth every stitch.

I'm so happy with how well the pattern turned out. And love the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn that I used. Such a pretty colour.
