Latest Knitted projects


These slippers were made for a friend for Christmas. I used two shades of purple double knitting tarn.


A child's purse.


Mobile phone casr.


I used James Brett Marble yarn to knit this poncho. I must say I like the end result. It is lovely. I have made three of these already. Friends and colleagues have been asking me to knit one for them. I have a few more to knit.
