Ombré Shrug

The latest issue of Let's Get Crafting - Knitting and Crochet is now out. And it's got a fabulous pattern for a little ombré shrug designed by yours truly.

It's my first published clothing design pattern so I'm pretty excited by it.

Finished Blanket

I loved working on this blanket. They mix of colours worked out great (slightly different to the actual pattern) and all the different stitches kept it interesting. It didn't take too long either - about a week and a half.
Hopefully the little man likes it!

Some photos of Christmas Makes

I just realised a post from Oct/Nov never published. My father-in-law died after a very short stay in hospital and the months before Christmas were very busy dealing with my mother-in-law, as well as continuing to design for Let's Get Crafting magazine and supply a shop with some toys.
Things are starting to settle down now. My magazine design work is continuing, which is great. The only downside is I can't blog about the stuff I'm making most of the time. I do hope to start self-publishing again over the next few months also as I've a few ideas going around my head.
Right now I'm taking some time out to crochet a blanket for Oliver's room. I'll share a picture once i can figure out how to do that on my phone!
