My Fyberspates Scumptious shaw design

Hi fellow bloggers, sorry I have not posted for quiet some time.  Sometimes other things take over in your life and I didn't want to just post for the sake of it.

Anyhow for those that know me and my knitting will know I have been working with lovely Fyberspates yarn designing my own pattern.

I am really pleased with how it has come out but would love your opinion on whether you feel it is a pattern you would like to make yourself?

My wife has kindly agreed to model it for me as I wanted to show it being able to be worn in different ways.  I have also showed the close up detail of the edging which I finished off with crotchet.

I really hope you like it.

2.8.11 For anyone that would like the pattern it is available from my Ravelry site .



  1. That's gorgeous - what yarn and colourway did you use?

    (and I love the haircut :D)

  2. That's a great looking knit pattern and I really like the way it can be worn as a chunky scarf. I haven't knitted with Fyberspates yarn yet, is it really nice to knit with?

  3. ooooooo that's lush!
    Well modelled P!!
    I'd love to make one like that,you're so clever.

  4. Fyberspates is just awesome. I love Scrumptious in all its weights! Which one was this?

  5. @ JCW: The colourway is Teal in Scrumptious DK, & thanks i'll tell the wife you like it :)

    @ Vintage Knitter: I'm glad you like it, it wasn't until I cast off and tried different ways to wear I realised how versitle it was and even better when I added the two buttons. It was lovely to knit with, very soft.

    @ Tickety-boo: I'm trying to keep up with you on the skill level but have a way to go yet :) x

    @ Red Haired Hiker: This was the yarn I bought when we went to WI finally used :)

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

This festival has been on my bucket list of must visits for a few year's.

For me my time in Edinburgh has not just been about yarn, it has been way way more.  It has been about a journey of beginning to believe in myself as a designer. Also about overcoming the anxiety of being away from my family.
It has been about having the confidence to go up to people I have never met and talking to them.

But it has also been about gathering inspiration and learning and boy does Edinburgh have inspiration by the bucket load!!!

The architecture is just beyond what I have seen before and the colours are just such an inspiration.

So please do enjoy journey I have taken over the last few days in picture form.

On my final day at the show I bought the Laine knitting journal, which will be so great for designing. But decided to grap the opportunity of creating the most perfect keepsake and ask people I admire to sign what ever they wanted.  The messages are so amazing and inspiring, thank you.

Birthday loveliness.

Last week I celebrated my birthday. I received beautiful flowers, my dear friend sent me a gorgeous skein of yarn and a pattern, along with the perfect project bag.
The following day my son and I took a trip to WWT Slimbridge where we did a canoe trip and safari which was fascinating. 
All in all a great couple of day.

Dottie Angel Dress.

Back in July this year Dottie Angel produced her first sewing pattern consisting of three variations of a smock or a dress in her perfect style pattern by Simplicity New Look.

Tif (Dottie Angel) has a global admiration of her work and many many of these beautiful creations started to begin.

So began my journey of picking fabric and binding all done online.

The dark brown corduroy was for the main body and the flowers for the pockets.
Then I wanted to get a lovely binding to set it off and found Liberty print binding on Etsy

Then I handed it all over to my very talented mum, who has many many years of experience and who so kindly offered to make it for me.

Then on 8 September the day arrived when I received my parcel at work with the lovely dress all perfectly packaged in it.

So here is the big reveal.

If you would like to see other lovely dresses go to #dottieangel and see the love.
