First blocked FO of the new year. A project I worked on and off - mostly off... - for months. #boxysweater designed by the lovely @jojilocat  My hem still turns up a little bit but I love it nonetheless 😊a lovely speckled off-white by #madelinetoshyarn  There seems to zero daylight for taking pictures these days. #imakemyownclothes  #handmadewardrobe  #knittersofinstagram

I used a bit of Liberty cotton lawn that I'd saved for the neck facing for my #top64. Such a beautiful pattern. #handmadewardrobe  #imakemyownclothes #merchantsandmills  #libertyoflondon

First finished sewn FO. The lovely #top64  pattern I got as a Christmas present. I used a #merchantandmills Japanese wool/cotton fabric - Kiso. A lovely boiled wool quality and totally soft. I top stitched all seams and I'm really chuffed with the results. It's very warm and cozy.  #handmadewardrobe #imakemyownclothes

Folio also chose one of my illustrations to print as a card along with the work of several  illustrators who have also produced work for them. Quite honored by this 😍 as they employ some of the best. Those are the 2 books I did underneath the cards. Old fashioned printing:  4 separate plates, one for each colour.

My illustrations for both Anne of Green Gables and Avonlea were used in a long article about L. M. Montgomery in Folio Books' end of year catalogue of new books.😊

The last time I knit a lopi sweater for my husband was nearly 40 (!!) years ago. Now no. 2 is blocking. Knit in full-strength Alafoss lopi, it took 2 weeks of evenings from start to finish. It's a pattern from the book I designed "Knitting with Icelandic Wool" and the pattern is Álafoss. He's ready for winter ❄️❄️❄️💨💨 😊#knittersofinstagram  #lopi

Another rave from the grave... as I'm cleaning out cupboards. One of my very oldest knits done when I was still a novice knitter. Not much knitting around then more challenging than @patriciarobertsknitting  in her Shetland wool. And it was knit back and forth. Not a circular needle in sight in England in the 70's and 80's! #knittersofinstagram

There are some knitting projects that are like landmarks in one's knitting life. The #kaffefassett Foolish Virgins was the biggest and most complex #intarsia knitting I'd ever attempted. Not sure if I'd have the patience to finish all those ends off today 🙄 Am I the only one that hangs on to certain knitted garments long, long after they cease to be in any way fashionable? Kaffe had a real 80's big look going when he designed this one 😱

Finally blocked my #fantooshshawl  and I love it, such a soothing lovely knit and beautiful Manos cashmere and silk laceweight.  My little hare brooch that I bought at Loop on Saturday seems to like it too 😊 @looplondonloves  #ravelry @manosdeluruguay
