A new translation...

It's cold and damp outside my window at the moment 
but at least it feels like spring here in my workroom x

♥  ♥  ♥
...just a quick post today...
...first I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has already entered the Giveaway...
so many of you and such kind comments too which have definitely brightened up the dark, gloomy 
days here and for which I'll be forever grateful...I'm still hoping the first signs 
of spring are just hiding around the corner...maybe? :-) x
(*if anyone would still like to enter the Giveaway you can find it here ...Closing date 14th March)
amongst other projects I've been busy working with my 
lovely friend Nancy of Dolce Lana and I'm happy to report that there is now another Dutch pattern
translation available here on the our ETSY Shop ...and on Ravelry...

(this is the version to knit a yarn doll flat on 2 knitting needles then seam the pieces together later)

All the listings have details of those patterns which have translations available
(hopefully there will be more in the future as I enjoy working on them)
If any customers have previously purchased a pattern but would prefer 
the new Dutch translation just let me know and I can send you a free copy
I can also send any patterns to be stored in your Ravelry library too 

Other translations now available in Dutch....
1. DOLLS from the TEAROOM (including a free sewn pinafore pattern)
2. A TEAROOM Doll Hat (variations)
3. Doll Pattern Deal (TEAROOM Dolls, Hats and Sewn Pinafore patterns)

(all details in regard to knitting methods ect. are included in the individual listings)

My cowl is finished just needs to be photographed....
and there are lots of projects in the making which I'm looking forward to showing you
(I'm going through a definite multitasking phase at the moment and enjoying it too! :-) )

Happy Crafting All

Back soon

Winter Knitting....

 cowl in progress...
Cast on a few days ago... almost complete now and ready to be blocked.... 
I'm looking forward to finishing it over the weekend and will take more pics when it's finished
(pattern from Quince and Co. using the beautifully soft, smooth and bouncy
 'Chickadee' .... 100% American Wool) my kitchen...
I must show you how hares are gradually multiplying around our house...cushions, lampshades, ornaments...
it will have to stop soon...(but not quite yet because I've just seen some lovely fabric ;-) ) aran sweater in progress...
Front almost finished...although only the a way to go yet!
(pattern from Virtual Yarns using the utterly gorgeous Hebridean 3 Ply
...very different to the yarn just mentioned although equally as lovely to work with... 100% British Wool)
Isn't wool amazing? ... I never get tired of reading about where my wool has come from... always adds to knitting really is magical...there's no other sound explanation

...pretty wonderland cup and an all time favourite book...
(a present from my girls...the original illustrations by John Tenniel are amazing and completely inspiring x)
I plan to collect all my favourites from the Penguin Clothbound Classics now
and replace my very tatty paperbacks ... next one has to be 'Wuthering Heights'
...and finally...
I must mention one of my best craft buys in the last year!
Laden with all my current projects...yarn, needles, hooks and books...
It has wheels and moves smoothly from place to place with me
(much to everyone's amusement around here)
It's perfect for moving out of the way and into a cupboard if short on space
(and I finally no longer lose anything while I'm working...hurrah!!!) also comes in several colours and it can be found here 

(* not sponsored... just something I happen to find absolutely useful x)

Back soon
