Knitting you know



There is still plenty of knitting in my life. I haven't thrown aside my needles by a long chalk.



I am patiently working on Libby, almost finished in fact and then there is the seaming. In between there have been some smaller projects, a few hats and this little scarf for Tilly.


I bought the gorgeous fleecy pink fabric when she was much smaller but didn't get around to making whatever it was I intended to make and of course now she is bigger and there just is not enough fabric to cover her ever taller self.


So I didn't feel so bad about cutting into it at last and Oh, it is soft, I really wish I had done something with it sooner. The knitted part is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, I just backed it with the pink fleecy fabric and used this fabric button to fasten.


I rather like it and indeed having tried it on myself last night as I sewed the button I found it a little hard to part with.


But it looks much better on Tilly.

Oh, that is just gorgeous. I adore your colour sense and the use of fleece to back a warm-but-not-windproof fabric. Genius!
Also, as ever, your photography mojo and beautiful model. :) Happy New Year!

Tilly looks gorgeous in it! I love the fabric button. I'm knitting in Cashmerino Aran too at the moment--so soft. K x

What a lovely idea, Rebecca, to line the scarf with pretty pink fleece. Extra warmth!! The little button adds that special girlie touch to it too. And Tilly looks so sweet!

As ever, Tilly is a beautiful model! She is certainly the best dressed student in her school!

I see no reason why you couldn't share the scarf...

That Libby cardigan is gorgeous! Makes me wish that I'd produced girls instead of boys....
