I hate cardigans!
Unless they are really chunky and baggy I think they should be banned!
So I always have a dilemma! You are going out on a spring (or summer in the UK) evening and its not hot enough to go without a jacket but not cold enough for jacket so what do you wear, especially if you are going to somewhere reasonably nice with a dress code?
It was St George’s day yesterday the patron Saint of England, famous for dragon slaying, being the ultimate knight of the realm and gentleman. Being English through and through (sort of!) I thought I would publish a simple yet effective English Rose pattern in his honor as I have patterns already up for St David and St Patrick!
As my son is only 2 this is the first time I have been inflicted with the terrible last minute “find a special outfit day” for school or nursery. As I mentioned in my Top Ten Easter Patterns post I had to make at short notice an Easter Bonnet for a boy who is completely not interested in bunnies, chicks, or anything remotely Eastery apart from the chocolate.
For ages I have been trying to come up with a pattern for a market style tote bag pattern that is quick to work up, is a decent size but is still economical on its use of yarn. This is so I could create loads of bags easily and cheaply in different colours to suit my outfit or mood!
This year I didn’t fancy going full dress up for St. Patrick’s day but I still wanted a little touch of something as nod to the day in my outfit. As I didn’t have a boot cuff pattern yet I thought this would be a great time to design one that could be used any time of year as well as in the 17th of March! Who doesn’t love a Shamrock! Read more
On the 1st of March it is St Davids day the Patron Saint of Wales! I feel he always gets a little over shadowed by good old St Patrick whose day is two weeks later. So to celebrate my Welsh heritage I decided to create a little Daffodil pattern, the national flower of Wales, for you all to enjoy! Use it in bunting, as an appliqué, in the middle of a granny square or how ever you like. Read more
In celebration of me finally restarting my blog I decided to share with you one of my favourite patterns. This pattern emerged from me tweaking my soap saver pattern and it is now my go to pattern or any small gifts. It’s a great way to use up yarn scraps and any beads you have laying about!
