I Knit Day 2008 - Saturday, 6th September 2008

Are there any other closet knitters (or even out-and-proud ones) over in the UK who are going to "I Knit Day 2008"?

Ok....here is another one

HereI am in another waistcoat I made out of my graphic print, that I told about earlier. It was exhibited in an art gallery among other things I had knitted out of this pattern.

Lace knit wedding dress

My best friend got married on the beach in Hawaii and wanted me to make the wedding dress. She didn't want anything fancy and sort of a 'baby-doll' type thing. It was a very informal thing.

Happy Dance!

Just got home from the LYS. Happened to find she now carries Austermann Step, made with Aloe. According to the label, it's "vacation for your feet." Do I need more sock yarn?
