Fair Isle Style Posted September 26, 2013
I have a skirt pattern in the book, Ketlin Skirt that some of you may have seen at the shop on one of the mannequins.
A few days ago, I started knitting a new sample with yarn I carry at the shop Pediboo by Frog Tree Yarns.
There are lots of great projects. Love the Bressay Dress by Gudrun Johnston, Morroless Socks by Mary Jane, the sweet bird doll Babsie Bird by Lucinda Guy, the striking Hap-Lapghan by Kirsten Kapur, Courtney Kelley’s vintagey Fara Raglan and last but not least Carrie Bostick Hoge’s Peerie Weerie Booties
So, leave a comment and get a chance to win this super book! Comments will be closed on Friday Sept 27 at midnight.
