A happy retirement cake for my Uncle Pat who finished work recently. Lots of fun making this – slightly complicated to work out all the details, but I’m really happy with how it worked out. Fancy a slice, anyone?

Pretty in Pink – Citron Shawl

Posted by Elaine B on Tuesday Mar 13, 2012 Under free pattern, Gift, Knitting, Pampootie, scarf, shawl

Here’s a pretty shawl I knitted for my Mum. It has gorgeous cascading ruffles, so you can wear it several ways. If you fancy knitting one yourself, check out the free pattern here. It’s very easy, knits up quickly so you’ll soon have a beautiful flouncy shawl of your very own.

Turtleneck Shrug

Posted by Elaine B on Monday Nov 14, 2011 Under Christmas, Gift, Knitting, Pampootie

Knitted from a  Teva Durham pattern, this was a Christmas gift for my Mum. She loves this and wears it a lot – especially when walking as her arms get chilly. She also wears it as a scarf with the sleeves wrapped round her neck – versatile or what!!

Two Tone Shrug

Posted by Elaine B on Saturday Nov 12, 2011 Under Christmas, Gift, Knitting, Pampootie

Here’s the latest shrug from my needles – a Christmas present for Mum. It’s Stephanie Japel’s shrug from ‘Fitted Knits’. My first attempt at ‘top down’ knitting and it’s so easy. I used one colour, rather than two as the pattern suggests and instead added some gauzy kid silk haze to the edges for a delicate look.
I’m really pleased with it and Mum is too. More pics on Ravelry.

Lisa Vintage Purse

Posted by Elaine B on Thursday Nov 10, 2011 Under Bag, Gift, Knitting, Pampootie

A little zippy knitted purse insipred by the green and pink flowers on the piece of vintage fabric used to line it. This gorgeous fabric came from my Grandma some years ago and I’ve always loved it and wanted to make something pretty with it.
