Shiny!

I’m sorry, blog. I seem to be pretty bad at updating you, and I’m not sure why it is. Perhaps just a question of habit? And also I guess the feeling that no one’s out there reading this (which I know isn’t true, but anyway even it was – that’s actually a rather liberating thought!).

So, a random assortment of photographs is called for, I think.

First: new shawl pin! I got this from Nicholas and Felice on Etsy and I’m in love with it. It’s aluminium, so a lot lighter than it looks, which is great for lace shawls! I now want to go and re-photograph all my shawls styled with this pin. Hope to acquire more loveliness from them in the future!

Ooh, shiny!

New shawl design, which I have so far utterly failed to announce on this blog! Hildina is a simple top-down shawl inspired by Estonian lace and designed to work with a variety of different yarn weights.

And here’s a photo of the beach near Dornoch (north Scotland, near Inverness!) where I was recently on holiday with my parents…

Despite my lack of updates on this blog, my design work has been going really well. I had a design accepted for publication in a UK magazine next spring (found out a few weeks ago, and I’ve only just got to the point of NOT HAVING TO SHOUT IN EXCITED CAPS!!!), so I’ve been working away on that, and also have a few other things in the works which I think I’m meant to keep secret (but wish I didn’t have to!).

And that’s enough exposure for one post, I think I will go and hide now… but hopefully not leave it quite so long til my next update. 🙂

  1. Pretty pictures! I was in Dornoch last year; we played golf there. Unfortunately there were gale force winds and rain that day. My memories of the area are a little more wild!
    Can’t wait to see the designs you’re working on – and congrats on the magazine publication!
