I am writing up a pattern for my shop.  I just need to add sleeves, although I think it looks pretty without, so I’ll do both!  I am knitting this from some heavy Aran weight commercial yarn but my intention is to knit is with one of my ‘Spin-a-Cardi’ packs.  I have dyed up the fibre, just need to spin it. 

I would like your opinions on the pattern please, oh and suggestions for a name? I might turn it into a competition, what do you think?


I have a deal on in my shop right now, for every 300g you can choose another 100g and I’ll refund the price of the cheapest lot. You will have to hurry though, because this offer finishes when I go to bed tonight, 27th July 2010. There are more details in the shop.

I have been dyeing up some beautiful new fibres which I am testing out at the moment, delicious they are! I think it will be hard to part with them. My house is awash with yummy fluff right now as I have the mega task of dyeing up enough fluff to fill a table at the IKnit Weekender in September.  This is the first time I have done a big show and I am a little bit nervous especially as I have heard that dropping off your stuff can be a bit hectic and stressful, and then of course there is the parking to think about!

  1. I love the top, beautiful. It looks a bit like a leaf garland or wreath. Can't wait to see the new fibres.

  2. Beautiful Marianne, you will be just fine at the show, your fibres will scream for themselves they are so beautiful 🙂

    What a beautiful sweater. Heres my suggestion: Galadriel And I looked it up in the Tolkien dictionary (online – I don't own one – I'm nerdy, but there is a line I won't cross)Galadriel S; Radiantly garlanded Lady; Lady of the Galadrim, Lórien; see Sil
