YES it's been a hectic couple of months, so I've been Missing In Action. but with the Christmas holidays now upon us, I've taken 5 minutes to myself, along with a touch of cleaning, which my flat was poorly in need of, space creating, ie: taking unwanted clothes to the charity shop, and a quick trip upto Portobello Road yesterday, just to get me in the mood for Christmas. And where I found the lovely feathered ear cuff.
on returning home I knitted this lovely little cropped tank. This will be my Christmas gift to myself. I'm in love with it. :)
I've knitted it from a Chunky bamboo yarn, which is soft soft soft, and this pink is lush.
When a customer takes the time out of their day, to capture an image of them wearing an iLE AiYE garment.
Yesterday Hilary sent me this cool image of her new black comfy iLE AiYE sweater, which I was so happy to receive, as I've said before it's a rare thing to see my knits being worn by someone other than me or my mum, so a surprise convo with attached pictures really makes my day.
Hillary is a fine photographer taking this image herself, with a tripod and self timer. Wow.. she really is very talented.

I'm loving her great atmospheric landscape work.
Having used some of this chunky yarn on my chunky winter sweaters
I couldn't resist knitting up some winter cowls, so using some of the alternative shades which are waiting in the wings to become sweaters, for now they will be used in these cowls.
YEAH last night I attended the Press launch of the new publication 'inspired London' a coffee table book of fine handmade talent available in our capital city.
I'm really pleased to be included, (Page 160)
And a fun evening was had, meeting up with some old friends as well as meeting some new.
The book is available to purchase via the button above at £12.99
I just couldn't wait any longer since my trip to Ibiza I'd been wanting to knit up this bamboo mix ivory yarn into a chunky cropped top, so yesterday I gave in to my temptations, and had to proceed. I love the yarn, the chunky warmth, and the simple style. I'll be making more in different chunky yarn mixes, and some with more coverage over the chest.
