Well here is it is, my version of Snowflowers or Snowflowers on a shoestring as I was too tight to buy the pattern. I have to confess this has been done quite a while but as soon as it was finished I started wearing it and I have worn it a lot!!
I had kind of hoped for snowy pictures ( well snowflowers and all ) which is why it has taken until now to get organised with the camera. It is warm and cosy and goes with pretty much anything.
I have worn it to work and I have worn it to do house work in anyway it occurred to me earlier as I was wearing it whilst splashing bleach around I had better get a couple of pics before it is worn out.
I was a little bit worried that the low neck might annoy me but it is actually really nice as you can wear a scarf with it or a polo neck without feeling like you are being strangled. I am also a fan of the fact that it is a bit roomy, ok it might add the illusion of an extra couple of lbs but I have full arm movement which I am really enjoying in comparison to all the fitted sweaters I have made over the last couple of years.
I still have yarn from the reindeer sweaters so am planning something else similar for later in the year.
Anyway until next time Happy Knitting

There has been quite a lot of sewing going on recently. During the week I whipped up another skirt for E again in fabric picked up at Oxfam. few years back I made this a cloth kits skirt. I loved it when I saw it on the cloth kits stall at Harrogate; I loved it when I finished it, but I have never worn it so and it has languished in the drawer ever since....
I didn't quite have enough fabric so I had to be a bit inventive and it has different fabric for the facings .
