Happy Holidays

happy-holidays-sweater2

 

This is my favourite time of the year but also the busiest, not just work wise but also because I have to fit in my wedding anniversary and birthday in the same month as Christmas! I am not someone who bemoans that the festivities start earlier every year, I have to be persuaded not to put on Stevie Wonder’s Christmas Collection in October.

The week before New Year is also a wonderful opportunity to swatch the new yarns that have come in for Autumn/Winter. Away from the studio and the emails and “stuff” that gets in the way of all things creative I can play around with ideas, texture and colour while watching reruns of Miss Marple, my idea of heaven.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and hope that you have a great 2017.

    Can you experienced knitters out there give me some advice. I have just finished knitting a jacket for my granddaughter in Cashmerino Aran and before sewing it up should i gently press it with a steam iron to flatten the edges before sewing. Also what stitch do I sew to join the shoulder & side seams together- back stitch or over stitch? thanks

      Hi Caroline, I always got told to sew side seams up with mattress stitch and if the garment was heavy to do the shoulders in a three needle bind off.
