2015 is nearly over and I am sitting with my family ready to watch the fireworks in London, toast a glass of my Dads finest single malt and sing a rather out of tune Auld Lang Syne. It has been a very busy year and looking back through all my photographs, I achieved so much this year, I am almost too exhausted to start thinking about what 2016 might bring!
I set myself a few challenges this year. The first was to produce my first book of knitting patterns. I am really proud of An Elven Reckoning. It has got some great reviews and I loved having a stand at Yarndale where I got to show off all the samples. It was a fantastic weekend and the book is still doing well. I am about to order my second print run! Each of the twelve patterns all came from ideas that have been lurking in my head for several years and all mean something special to me. My favourite photo from our shoot made the front cover of the book. I give my heartfelt thanks to all my friends and family who helped me get it out there.
There were a few other designs released in 2015 as well as those in my book. Horwood is a cute textured hat that is published by the Knitting and Crochet Guild. There was also the Baby Owl Mobile pattern for crochet lovers and cute babies, Cozette Cowl in Knit Now! February issue and May Cowl in the BaaRamEwe book of Titus mini knits.
All that is left is for me to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year and to persuade my Dad to open his whisky cabinet ;) Cheers!
