No..it's not an award I've received!!....after having so much fun knitting Norah's Anais I've decided to knit something each month from a designer I admire.
I'm sure this will be a great learning curve for me as I try and expand on my design skills.... it also allows me to switch my brain off a little ....and I get to add to my knitted wardrobe which is sadly lacking as I give away so much of what I knit!
So Norah was April and May is going to be Ysolda!
I have knit one of her toys before but not a garment. I've admired Coraline for a while now and I had the impulse to use my stash of leftover black Hempathy to make a cropped version of this cardi.
....yes black...even when Fresno will be hitting the 100's this week temp-wise.....there is some sense to this though as I'm going to be living in Shetland for 3 months as of August!! ....more on that later.
Here is my Coraline progress so far:(that's water btw.....)
....and just to include some colour...here is Maya's latest original artwork....
PS: Also working on a design for knitonthenet in Habu silk ........that stuff is gorgeous!
