I've had this pattern for years, but was a bit put off by how complicated it looked. My gran recently made one for charity and both my sisters decided they wanted one, so I thought I'd give it a go for one of their birthdays. It turns out it's not complicated, there are just lots of little bits to it.
Some friends of my parents are moving to Australia and mum asked me to make some knitted dolls for them as a leaving present. This is meant to be a Shell Oil employee with red boiler suit complete with little shell logo and hard hat. The women in in a swimsuit with a swimming float as it was made for my mum's aqua aerobics teacher.
This year seems to be the year of the baby for my friends. 3 goods friends have given birth this year or are due to given birth very soon. I found a gorgeous hat pattern that I've made for the 2 baby girls that my friends have given birth to this year. Very easy pattern, but looks lovely and intricate.
I'm a Yorkshire lass who has been living in Edinburgh that long that I'm now accustomed to the rain! I started knitting in 2005 and my lucky family all received scarves for Christmas that year.....thankfully I've now moved on to other projects and wanted somewhere to showcase them and hopefully inspire others....
