Thanks for all the info on the new magazines. Looking forward very much to the new ones but, knowing me, I'll probably end up buying all four UK magazines anyway just in case I miss something. LOL
Well, I had a few things to show you but Blogger wasn't being very friendly again and I had to really beg for just one itsy bitsy little picture!
Rapunzel from Patons 'A Princess Tale' booklet
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!" I used to love that fairy tale as a child. Just the thought of a girl with such long hair that it could reach right down to the ground from the tower was fascinating. I must admit though I did wonder how painful it would be for Rapunzel to have someone clutching on to her tresses as they climbed up and how strong the roots of her hair would need to be to actually withstand the stress. In reality, the situation would probably be much less romantic, the end result being a bald Rapunzel with hair pulled out at the roots and the climber with a broken neck on the ground below still clutching her locks and bits of scalp. Yuk. Anyway, yes, the Rapunzel baby cardi is finished! Heidi, the details of the pattern are above.
Knitnana was looking forward to a sneak preview of her prize for my first Blogiversary competition but I wasn't able to upload the photo. Sorry! I'll try again later. She chose a shawl pin in turquoise and browns which is now winging its way across the pond.
As for my eShop, Cherry, it turns out it was at least workable after all. A big thanks to Sharon from Maidstone Knitters who has been an absolute star and has helped me so much in pulling it together. Although it's true that the template is unable to be customised, it wasn't quite true that I couldn't have a shop name displayed. We're still working on it but it should be up and running in about a week. The templates available are not very prepossessing and, believe it or not, of the garish colours available, yellow was the least evil!
'Til later . . . . .
