Another Busy Year
I just don't know where this year has gone ! Just 7 weeks until Christmas and I havn't even thought about it yet, Most of the year has been spent burried under a huge pile of wool ( sheer bliss ) designing new patterns and writing new books. I love every second of it and it is made all the more special by the lovely letters I get from everyone who enjoys making some of the toys and projects from my designs.
It is a shame though, from time to time that printing errors show up in patterns and books, although every effort is made to ensure this wont happen it inevitably does. There are so many processes in the publishing and editing of books that even after a professional pattern checker has gone through all instructions, a nasty little gremlin STILL finds its way in somewhere : ( All printing errors are reported to the publishers who assure me that they will make sure that in the next print run they will be corrected.
My designs have been many and varied this year, ranging from Unicorns, London Buses and Dinosaur hand puppets to some very pretty new toddler designs for my book which is due out in March next year. My favourites being the sweetest fairisle angora puffed sleeved cardi for little girls, and a dear little bunny bag to keep special treasures in.
I am busy working on bunny rabbits for another new book, they will all be different sizes and characters and will range from teeny tiny ones that sit in the palm of your hand to a lovely sleepytime bunny that is just right size to snuggle up in bed with.
Thank you to everyone who enjoys making my designs and who buy my patterns and books, you make all my work worthwhile. Do send me pictures of your work, I love to see them.
Wishing everyone hours of happy knitting in the months to come !!
