Over the Moon!

What to Wear? Lace Capelet over black!

Yesterday I received some wonderful news – I am a finalist for the Vogue Knitting Magic of Mohair Competition.  This means that my garment will be modelled at the fashion show and Gala dinner at the Vogue Knitting Live event and could possibly win.  I would then have my garment published in a future issue of Vogue Knitting!

I am going!  How could I not go?  Don’t talk to my husband – he would give you many reasons why I shouldn’t go!  I know that I would always regret not going – this could be a one off opportunity!

So I am over the moon and terrified – what if I win?!  What if I don’t?!  I’ll let you know!


Happy Knitting

    Yes – something that you have hand painted over black. What yarn did you use in the one above.
