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

  1. Hello Susan - how lovely to read your post - you always brighten my days with your beautiful colours and lovely photos, no matter what the weather outside is doing! It would be great to have some warm spring sunshine though.....!
    Looking forward to seeing your finished cowl, also, how is your little Daisy?
    Hoping you have a happy week, and that the sun will shine soon!
    Take care,

  2. Thank you Lynda... Miss Daisy is a complete darling (and so mischievous..haha!) ...we all spoil her completely!...will post a pic of her next time ;-)
    ...still waiting for the sun to shine!...x

  3. Hi , Even if it is a bad weather you have beautiful pictures, and always with lights. Something it is hard to do here, I live in a little wood and the weather is so grey at that time! Do you use lights to take pics?
    Well I know that translation is a hard and long work! I do my own translation French -English and terms are not the same! so congrats to your new translation.
    Have a great day,
    ROse, xx

    1. Thank you Rose...I don't use artificial lights and I'm lucky that my room has lots of natural light but some days it's just not possible ;-( Yes, I agree translations are hard work...between us we end up with a lovely pattern so I do enjoy it ;-) x

    Your post is like spring with all this colours. :)
    I hope spring comes soon even in your corner!
