And speaking of winners, I had a lovely surprise when a package arrived in the mail not so long ago - I was a winner with the December OPAM and received this lovely little kit from Kris of Tagalong Teddies
After a year of knitting I was hoping by the end of this year I might have skills enough to be able to volunteer to do a test knit for a designer, so I was super excited (and nervous) when Laura Aylor mentioned she had a test knit open for an easier knit - and even more of both when I was accepted as one of her testers ...... so I've been busily trying to work on it to have it completed by the 16th Feb ! Eeeek, not too many days away!!! So with FNSI this is what was keeping me busy all night!!
I do have to add that I'm really enjoying this knit and love the way it's shaping up - knit from the neck down in one piece - so no sewing bits together after you finish knitting which I find a massive plus!! Laura has some fabulous knitted patterns - you can find her on Ravelry where she has a group and holds knit alongs to assist with anyone knitting up her patterns. If you are not familiar with Ravelry, you can click on her name it will take you to her blog.
I actually have 2 other knits going at present which are both Laura's patterns - currently on hold while I get the test knit completed - I'm happy with the way the this sleeveless dress is beginning to shape up considering I'm using yarns I have in my stash!
