Commissions

Just to prove I can do knitting in 'real time'....

This is a clapotis for my friend to wear at a wedding in a few weeks time...

Made in Rowan Tapestry shade SH173

Not the easiest to run the stitches with but it does drape well and I hope should keep Tree warm.






And for those that went to Creative Stitches in Exeter, this is the finished scarf.
I admit that I did have some help with it, and it did stop a lot of people, the number of school children who wanted it.....

Not the nicest knit in the world, and I cant remember what sort of eyelash it was done in....

This is a friend for the 'lovely' pink scarf finished a while ago...


And now the only thing I *have* to make for someone else is a cardi in Parisienne, but that shouldn't be that bad as I have no time limit and it is nicer to knit with than eyelash....

And with a bit of luck I should have a working heating system soon, I have a new tank full of oil, it was going to be connected to Stanley today but it is too wet for holes to be drilled through walls... Good job I've got lots of knitting to keep me warm !! (and my stove is really called Stanley, it's not just me giving it a silly name.....honest.....)

The clapotis looks great! I'm a fan of the Tapestry - making a bag to be felted out of shade 172 at the moment - how much did you need in the end?

Clapotis looks great, its still on my to-do list.
I thought (in my ignorance)that the Biddy earley brewery made the Black sheep ale, its great to hear that its still being enjoyed in other places!
