CANDY Knitting


Just a quick update on my latest project.
CANDY is almost finished although I will need to keep hold of her for a short time while I add the finishing touches to the pattern.
We have developed quite a bond over the last few weeks as she has sat quietly watching me work!
I am really looking forward to introducing her to you...








Wishing you a lovely weekend

MJT Shoe & Boot Designs



Here are a few photographs of MJT shoe and boot designs which may be useful if you are in the middle of a project or are deciding on a pattern.
For other photographs from my patterns go to the Labels category in the right hand column and look for NOTES where you will find them under various headings.




PRIMROSE in stripy tights
and pretty, pink Mary Jane shoes





BLUEBELL in Stripy Socks and Mary Jane Shoes
( also showing her bloomers!)




BLUEBELL again.
This time using Patons Cotton 4 Ply.
The yarn is not used in the pattern but knitted up well
and I still like the addition of the lavender stripes.





DAISY's Dancing Slippers
The pompoms were made using cotton yarn
and she is wearing pretty lacy edged socks
(also more bloomers!)




BO's Leg Warmers and Snow Boots
The Sirdar Eco Wool worked really well for the boots
and they have twisted cord laces.





ANIKA's Stripy Tights and Sweetheart Snow Boots
Anika's boots make me think of log cabins
and painted wooden hearts!





OSCAR's Roll Top Boots
These are made with Rowan Classic Pima Cotton DK
They have a lovely smooth quality.

Have a wonderful day

MJT Leg Designs

Adding to my pattern NOTES, I thought it would be a good idea to publish a series of posts containing useful groups of photographs  which focus on different aspects of my designs. You can then use these as a reference in your project and so today it is legs!
Below are various leg designs from MJT patterns.
All the groups of photographs will eventually be available under the LABELS tags for you to return to when required.



PRIMROSE in stripy tights



OSCAR in socks



BLUEBELL in stripy socks



DAISY in lacy socks


                                               
BO in leg warmers



ANIKA in stripy tights



CANDY
(waiting for her easy pull-on shoes and socks!)




Have Fun!

Thank You !





Thank you so much to everyone who purchased PRIMROSE  over the last few days. A total of £50 was raised from sales over on Ravelry as part of the Help for Haiti campaign and a much needed donation has now been made to Médecins Sans Frontières to help them in their work, which is truly wonderful!
It has been a really rewarding experience to be able to make such a positive contribution through my designs and I am looking forward to doing much more in the future.
I have sent a personal message to all those friends who purchased at this time, but this is another opportunity for me to say a huge

    THANK YOU !!!
