This is my first attempt at socks, and I am willing to try a more complicated pair now, however, the sock yarn and DPN's are not readily available in the local yarn stores, so I will have to do my shopping on e-bay!!

This is an invitation for Afternoon Tea which I designed for a craft competition. The card was part of a display with other people making quilted pillows, patchwork bags, homemade scones & jam, and a crochet baby afghan. I did not contribute to any of these things. Most of the card is recycled materials and a couple of motifs which I bought at a craft fair, ie the cakestand, cup and cake slice. I enjoyed making this card and was delighted when the judge scored me 10/10.

This mint green matinee jacket by Studley was knit "in advance" of a newborn baby. I don't knit a lot of green things for a baby because I don't know if they should be given to a boy or girl!!! I expect that it can be either one or the other. Anyway I bought the wool and knit the first pattern in my baby book, the quickest as it so happens!!
I joined Ravelry earlier this week and can't seem to get the button on my blog, there is something there with an X and I followed all the instructions, also my photos wouldn't stream from Flickr, not my week I guess. I will just have to put the link for each on instead and hope that it will work!!! I would love the buttons to work though, they are lovely.
