This week I finished off my new design.

Sean Bláthanna meaning Old Flowers is another design in my Neoknitic range. I will be doing a blog post about it tomorrow so you can read more about it and its name.

I finished off Elizabeth’s Miss Marple and it is now ready for her to wear. As you will see I chose teal coloured buttons to add some colour to it. The project page can be found here.

I’ve started another Westlynn Wrap this time for Elizabeth and this will be her Christmas gift so hopefully won’t take to long to work up. She chose a spice colour for her wrap and it’s project page can be found here.

I’m also starting on the next piece to write up for this months article.

These will pretty much be my two main projects this week, I won’t be working on my next design until I have Christmas gifts out of the way, I have ordered yarn for them though so once the gifts are done I can start immediately, well you have to be prepared!

The project page for all my yop projects is up to date and can be found here.
