quick update

I have been a fan of Julia Marsh from Hand Knitted Things ever since I used her pattern to knit up a house for Age UK, Warm House. A few weeks ago she had a giveaway on her blog, which I was lucky enough to win.
When it arrived it was beautifully wrapped....

and inside were Stylecraft vouchers and some Stylecraft goodies....

 Julia also put one of her knitted brooch houses in the parcel.....so I was well chuffed!

As regards my own knitting I have just finished a shawlette as part of a knit a long with Helen and Lola from Instagram. The pattern is Hitchiker by Martina Behm for more details click here. I used Rico Design Las Vegas yarn, which has a wee bit of a sparkle.... I do like a bit of bling.

I'm also still working on my latest food pattern and a project for a blog hop. The blog hop is to review the book, My Knitted Doll by Louise Crowther or rather Boo-Biloo. So call back next Thursday for that.

All the best, Ali
