Sneak peek!

So here's a sneak peek at some of the new items I recently designed and made to enter into the Spotlight competition that closes at the end of this month - I think I have about 5 possible entries, and may squeeze some more in - it's the temptation to just keep designing and making things instead of finishing off the paper work etc for the entries I have completed that is the problem! Now just to photograph! Anyway here is a sneak peek at the main entry - it's knit AND crochet dress top - but I'm being coy and only letting all see a smidgeon!

Pssssst! I LOVE honeycomb cables! ; )

I've made 3 pairs of new knit cuffs all in different colours - I'm just a bit iraira (frustrated) about the fact that this new lattice stitch I just learnt to knit doesn't show up very well! Any tips? It's not really very defined/clear examining it in person either sadly - and I've made it in two very different colours : (

This is my attempt to try and give you a closer, clearer image of the knit lattice pattern. Yeah - not working is it? Sighhhhhhhhhh.

I also tried making one design that was just - let's face it - plain UGLY. So I canned it. 5/6 not too shabby though methinks.

Wish me luck and stay tuned to see what I finally decide to enter!
