Here’s a much better picture of my soon-to-be-released design, Nell – superbly and glamorously modelled by my Mum. The pattern has been tech edited, and a test knit is nearing completion. As the yarn I used for the prototype is discontinued, I’m halfway through another one, this time using Babylonglegs Semi~Precious DK in Auld Gold, a lovely merino/silk blend which has been lurking in my stash for quite some time now. I’m hoping to be able to release the pattern in the next week or so, providing I can find an able and willing model for some proper and decent photographs in the meantime. I’ve come to the conclusion that I much prefer to take pictures of someone else wearing my designs rather than myself … plus it means I can then concentrate on getting the style of photographs I want.
