An iLE AiYE shrug and the mother of the bride.

To my delight, I received this photograph yesterday, from a lovely customer in the US, who had worn her Silver firefly loose weave shrug, to finish off her mother of the bride outfit, It's always a treat for me to see my work worn by my customers, these days it's a rare treat, with most of my sales being done via the web. I'm thrilled at how perfect the shrug pairs with her gorgeous dress, and works in exactly the way I designed it, ie: a little glam, arm cover up on a strapless/thin sleeved gown. Thank you Lisa for allowing me to use your image on my blog, and in the first instance for taking the time to send me an image of your special day,

Double knitted luxury alpaca and silk m2m sweater

This was a custom order, the yarn is the softest most gorgeous of yarns I think I've worked with to date. all beit a bit tricky to knit with, as double knitting two skeins at the same time can lead to some tangling, I really need to get some kind of skein holder to make this task a little easier.
