Dingle Dangle

Just a quick post to show you all the results of my knitting.  The Dingle Dangle brooch. The pattern is from the lovely book Pretty Knits by Loop Knitting in London.  There are patterns by various designers and this pattern  is by Julie Arkell.  It was a quick make albeit a little fiddly to assemble. I used tapestry wools and left over cotton yarn to make it.  I didn't add the knitted bow but opted to use a fabric one.  You can't see from the photos but the bow is slightly quilted.  I am pleased with the result but am not sure why I choose the lilac purple  combo as I have nothing really to wear  it with.  Must have been influenced by the spring flowers all around.  

Bagpuss dressing gown - brooch a bit wonky

Very pretty

It is now 11.35 am and yes I am still in my dressing gown - slob - I have been doing  a few household chores though and as I am working at 2 pm thought I would potter this morning and then shower later.  Bye for now. Oh by the way I  have used my peg bag and the handbag styleee thing works really well much more ergonomic.  If I feel brave enough I might make some and pop them in my Folksy shop - I set it up and then have been too bashful to put anything in it.  Could do with a little bit of spendo spondoolies for my holdidays so maybe I will give it a go.
