Well, hellllooooo :) Still here - honest!! I've been lurking in the shadows of blogland all summer long, hehe :) We did manage a lovely city break during the hols - perhaps more on that later though!
Back to the business in hand - one of the girls at work was looking for a sleeve for her lovely new mobile phone so I felt it was time to come out of tweedie-hibernation and do the decent thing. I used some of my nice new Kaffe Fasset fabric to line it and my current fave tweed - it's a very lovely pink/purple plaid - most delicious!
In the background is my new knitting book (acquired on my recent birthday). It's called 150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs by Mary Jane Mucklestone. I think it will be a life-long favourite - a whole heap of lovely Scandinavian knitting block patterns to use - fantastic stuff!
I've started a little experimental piece just to practice with . . .
Might just make a little purse or something . . . who knows :) Aren't the wee figures cute though! There are lots of great blocks to choose from - I'm really interested in trying out the figurative designs - owls, deer, birds - so many to choose from. Really inspiring selection - I can't recommend this book enough!
I have been a little (understatement!) absent from my blog this summer hols - with teenage son heading off to Uni and 'Little S' starting secondary school within weeks of each other, I've been finding it a little difficult to settle down to any crafting, 'tweedie' or otherwise. Hope I will be back in the loop though, now that things are beginning to settle . . . . just a little.
Hope you have had (or are having) good summer hols - it's all back to homework and school uniforms here!
