The KC collection

Up and coming new designs have now been finished and I am doing some preview pics for flickr. I call this the 'KC' collection as it includes both Knit and Crochet! There are some OOAK pieces and some that have been repeated.
Before I went on holiday I was searching for some new yarn to inspire me in my beach knitting...
TA DA!!!
In front of my little eyes was the most amazing sock yarn from Schoppel Wolle called Zauberball!
The colours blend beautifully and I picked 4 different colourways. Armed with my notebook and needles and hooks I flew off to Crete to contemplate the way forward.........
I like to bothknit and crochet so I felt that some designs that incorporate both crafts would be good for me. I fancied some more modern knit shapes worked in separate parts that would be joined with crochet.
I do find people stare on the beach and wonder what I am knitting, occasionally someone can't stand it any longer and have to ask me!!
Back home I finished the pieces with some tiny glass beads and my labels and got my lovely girls to do some modeling :)
I hope you like my little collection. It will be for sale in the shop this Friday 30th July around 5pm UK time.
Next week I have some REALLY exciting news. My friend Clare (buttons and stars) has made a special Blythe collection which I will be showcasing in my shop as a 'Guest Designer'. The pieces are so beautiful, I know you are going to love them!
Also anyone who is interested in my Blythe Boyfriend cardigan DIY kits please email me for details. I should be doing a listing in my etsy shop too :)
