The Winners are . . . . and the experimental piece complete :)

Big drum roll . . . . . . the winners of the Giveaway are:  Gretchen and Gabriella!  Congratulations ladies  - I will be in touch by e-mail, but feel free to send me your name and address details as soon as . . . . :) :)  Thanks to all for taking part - it was fun to do a little giveaway!

As I promised, I'll show you the results of the little experimental colour-work piece from last week's doodle . . . 



I'm quite pleased at how it worked out - considering it came from a VERY quick doodle!  It's basically a tubular knitting swatch (on 4 double pointed needles) but the pattern could be used for anything really . . . I actually think I might be feeling a pair of socks coming on, hehe!  Cute little scottie dogs adorning the top of a pair of woollie socks - what do you think?  I'm still tweaking the design a little ie. shifting the little motifs between the scotties and possibly adding another motif on the bottom but it's got lots of possibilities I think :)   Oooops, a whole new area of creativity - Oh Dear!

Hope you had a relaxing or productive weekend - I think mine was definitely more relaxing than productive, so I'd better get going now - byeeeee :)

Hooray! Thanks, Alison! And, I am crazy impressed at your pattern work and how it turned out. Now the possibilities are endless! (And yes, they would be very cute on the top of a pair of socks.)
