Crocheted yarn pot – for putting your yarn in when knitting or crocheting to stop it getting dirty or being played with by cats! This is a larger version than my previous one, and is my own pattern. You can thread the yarn out through the top (centre of the flower) or through a hole in one of the ends. This is made from a chunky acrylic yarn so that it’s washable and doesn’t felt. It’s a present for a friend who has a new kitten.

Fingerless gloves – another Christmas present. Knitted to my own design, using a traditional Shetland lace pattern called Print o the Wave. The wool used is produced on the Isle of Mull at a place called Ardalanish (click here for more details). It knits as 4-ply/ DK. These were knitted on 3.75mm needles, as I usually knit quite loosely. But I think future ones will be on 3.5mm needles, as they’re slightly wider than designed. But the person they’re aimed at has wider hands than I do, so they should be ok. The pattern is available here for anyone interested 🙂

Rhenzo’s socks – a commission for a baby who has chunky little calves but normal sized feet, which means ordinary socks just dig into his legs leaving marks behind. So, tailor-made socks for him, knitted to fit. DK wool, knitted on 4mm double pointed needles. The pattern is my own.
