Goodness... I didn't mean to leave it this long since my last post. I get so busy, and forget to blog. I have bought some lovely books lately and they have been keeping me really busy.
This is Woodland Knits by Stephanie Dosen, I have admired her work for a few years now but was never confident enough to make anything but this book is so beautiful I had to get it and try a few things. Actually the patterns are really simple and I regret not doing any sooner. I especially love her Hexy puff pattern which isn't in this book but I have now bought the pattern from Ravelry. It's so beautiful but it's a long term project.
Here is a sneak peek at the book for those of you who haven't seen the book.
Can't rotate this picture it's actually driving me mad it's the only one I can't change, grrrrr
I have made this but I have put my antlers on yet, or taken any photos.
How gorgeous is this scarf a foxy teddy bear cuddling you all day.
Amazing wings, I think of lots of little girls' who would love these.
I am planning these next
And this is my first project from the book the Dragon Watcher's hood, I have an elf hat!! I love it and it's my first raw fleece to finished object project which makes me really happy. All my hard work and I have something to show for it.
Its a really beautiful book printed on lovely paper and the photos are so atmospheric and the pages so beautifully decorated, I can't recommend it highly enough. I want to make everything... if only I had all the time in the world to knit...
My next book is Crochet at play by Kat Goldin, but you will have to wait until next time.
