Kid Silk Haze Stripe gloves





Time for a bit of 'Show n Tell', at the beginning of December I posted a picture on Facebook of some Rowan Kid Silk Haze Stripe gloves that I was making .... well drum roll .... here are the finished items. I used a pattern called ' Johnstone Gloves' from 'A Season's Tale' book by Kim Hargreaves: very old, fabulous book, with classic patterns by Kim.............. I used 3mm needles and had the yarn working 2 as 1. You can get 3 gloves out of one ball - so you'll have to buy a second ball to get 3 sets of gloves. My first Kid Silk Haze project and I see what all the fuss is about!!

A dress for the Festival of Quilts

I mentioned in my last post that I made a dress for the Rowan stand at the Festival of Quilts....well, this is the fabric by Dan Bennet and his designs are based on 'under the microscope'....

                               

And this is the end result.....making one for a friend already....

                             

So this is the front........and this is the back....


                          

And I'm rather pleased with it!
