Who’s ready for winter?

Dear Friends

I can see that the weather has changed, it’s cold and frosty here.  Sorry, but I think this is wonderful and the way Christmas should be.  A chance to wear all the lovely gloves, scarves and hats you have been saving all year.

I have been very busy since the summer.  Some of the orders have been for Christmassy things and some just because they looked lovely.  This beautiful green cardigan in cotton was made in the Autumn but is all ready for the Spring.  It looks quite plain as the tiny rosebuds are very understated, but it was a lovely pattern and cotton is always easy to knit with.

I also made these two little slipovers for a young lady of 9.  I was asked to make the two and given a free hand as to what pattern and what colour.  This does not happen very often so I dug deep into my oddments basket and found these colours. Not enough to make anything with on their own, but look what you can do when you put them together. She loved them which always makes me smile.

Lastly, and not least the lads, this jumper for Nathan ticked all the boxes. I used up some beautiful Rowan British Sheep Breeds DK which is very warm and he asked for the yellow collar. Why not, it’s different and it made him happy. He might wear it now!

I’m finishing off a cardigan for my friend in South Africa, which of course he will not need just yet as it’s very warm there right now. I will keep you posted and pop a picture into the next newsletter, let me know what you think.

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I am nearly done, I have never been this organised in my life, there’s just the food to think about as everyone is coming to me this year. I love it.

If I don’t get the chance to produce another newsletter this side of Christmas, may I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Lots of love
