Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , on December 28, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I just received a lovely book.

It’s called Fashion: The Ultimate Book Of Costume And Style, I had quick look and it showcases fashion from all eras.

I also got these cool earrings.

Hope you had some stylish gifts too!

Polka Dot Nails

Hi All,

I got these (rather cheap) nails from Primark because they looked a little Christmassy and cute.

They got me think thinking about fabric and garments in a similar pattern.

I've wanted a dress like this for a long time.

Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Yarns From Germany

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 21, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I wanted to share a trade I did with Tailor Fairy (from Germany), she was giving away a lot of lovely wool and I gave her metres and metres of fabric!

I have quite a few plans for them but I am knitting other garments for myself and other.

Heres a gallery of said yarns!

 

I may make a loop scarf out of this.

Happy crafting.

Moss Stitch Tank Complete!

Hi All,

Here is a photo of the tank I knitted for myself (it looks better in reality… trust me)

Black and purple!

I have to admit, it does look “holey” and this is my first attempt at a v neck garment.

I’ll do this pattern again in the crew neck version and in different wool too. See how that turns out.

Plus this only took me a few days to do and is great for beginners.

Hi All,

I have a habit of doing late night/early morning knitting and I decided to let you in on what it is I’m up to.

Yet again the damn photos be blurry! So here’s a photo of the pic in the pattern.

I’m attempting the v neck version… I have noticed I’m doing a lot more knitting than sewing. It must be the weather.

Wish me luck anyway!

Hi All,

I have completed my version of this hat a while ago and posted a photo on Facebook.
