iLE AiYE in illustration

These are a couple of sketches taken from some of my poses in the iLE AiYE collection, the artist Barbara of asked if she could use some of my images to make up sketches, I'm totally thrilled. I've only been drawn by Mr iLE AiYE to date, so it's quite a thing to see myself in cartoon type form. :)

some new shades

The cream side slit sweater is a combined effort, a customer in the US who breeds Alpacas, asked if I could knit her up some of my designs in the wools weaved from her alpaca farm. I was delighted when a box of lush alpaca yarns arrived, the cream sweater is no.1 of 3 garments, it's funny how the yarns are so different, despite coming from the same animals, One of the yarns is really quite oily, something I've never experienced before, it seems to be doing wonders for softening up my finger tips. :)
