You may remember when a while back I was talking about my Laced Cream cardigan that I mentioned it was for a birthday celebration (in case you were wondering about the cardigan’s progress, I still need to make another sleeve and do the edging). Anyway, I thought, as it is a big celebration, I would decorate… Continue reading Scattered Flowers
Apologies for my absence folks! I’m afraid I’ve been very bogged down with work lately – and still am.
I just wanted to reassure you all that I am still here. I have been reading all your posts and commenting so hopefully that’s some proof!

Just look at her! Isn’t the stitch pattern beautiful? (Ignore the incredibly old and un-beautiful towel beneath!) I credit the steam blocking that I tried out using the lovely Jayda‘s YouTube tutorial. I’ve never done it before and I was nervous because I was scared the yarn might melt – though it’s pure cotton so there… Continue reading Trying Out Steam Blocking
