Latest commission – a 10″ x 8″ embellished photograph. Not my usual style – a bit too pretty pretty. But it’s what they ordered! Photo transfer on to canvas, embellished with embroidery silks, couching, goldwork techniques.

 

NB : you may notice there is no week 32 – unfortunately I’ve been ill, so life has been on hold!

New top! Pattern is Isabella, by Jordana Paige. I adapted it to have a lacy edging on bottom and armholes, and angled the collar slightly. I also made the front ‘medium’ from the 3rd row of eyelets, while keeping the back as a small. The yarn used is Robin 4-ply, and it took c. 150 grams. I knitted it in the round up to the armholes. This is a really simple pattern to knit.
