A ‘Promise Present’ was given as a Christmas present to my younger son.


Big Ben’s Broad Shoulders

We were so caught up with negotiating a complete overhaul in our bathroom (including replacing a rotten floor) as well as hosting numerous workshops at the Chapel Gallery, I didn’t have time to knit a ‘bright green jumper’ as was the request.

Needless to say I couldn’t source just the right kind of green that the boy wanted in 100% natural wool.  So I went for ecru aran weight blue faced leicester wool.  The wool is very soft and kind on the skin and I could dye it being 100% natural fibres.  (In an earlier post you can read of my dyeing fun.)


V-Neck Front

Here is the finished garment.



I knitted it on 4mm and 5mm needles and it took around 8 days from start to finish.

I’m busy getting ready for spring.   Here’s a sneak peak of something in the making.


strips ahoy


Bright & breezy backing…

 It *must* be around the corner soon… pretty please.


Standing proud like tulips & daffodils?
