Woot! I Had A Photo-Shoot!

So I have finally had my designs photographed on a human! Hooray!
An old friend from my rock band days (my band manager to be precise) is now a photographer. He mainly does glamour stuff and has some pretty racy pictures on his website, but he has super kindly agreed to help me out with some gorgeous photos. Most of his models were wanting to do some modelling for me too and you can see a few of the results below.
Just call me MEGAHAPPY! :D

Tra La La! Happy Happy Happy! lol! Sorry, it's been a long time coming and I was so sick of Barb (my mannequin), she was very stiff you know dahrlink!
Anyway, all patterns will be updated with their beautilicious new photo and all posts about the patterns will be updated too :)
For super sexy photos of your designs, go to www.zegrae.co.uk 
He is a special man!

Following straight after School Daze is another hat. I had both in testing at the same time so they have both completed now too.
Air is a slouchy super fast knit with a lace style pattern to keep your head getting too hot in your hat and looks gorgeous! I wanted to do a spiralling pattern and this is exactly what I had in mind...which makes a change for me :)

Air is available for download now.

School Daze

My second pattern is released on Ravelry. Hooray!
School Daze is a cabled pom pom hat with some old school charm, hence the name.
It's not made in the conventional way of making a hat. You actually start with the cabeling and add the pom pom and ribbing band later. This is probably because it started its life as a cabled cowl...but I thought it was kinda boring so bound it off and made a hat instead! Much more fun and super cute to boot!

Buy it now from Ravelry.

Mossy Pearls

My first pattern for sale has gone up on Ravelry!

Mossy Pearls is a straight forward, easy pattern that makes a lovely slouched hat.
I'm so excited.
I have been making this hat for a while for people and didn't really think about selling the actual pattern until someone asked about it recently.
It's been all tested and everything. Ooh I feel all professional :)

You can buy it straight from this page with the "Buy Now" button that will take you to Ravelry.
Happy Mossing :D

Introducing Triple C

My friend Alan had his birthday on August 2nd. I decided I would switch from the routine of buying him something vodka related and make him something instead. 
He is quite a cool guy, likes to stay in trend, but likes to stay warm too so I designed a cowl which would be super warm in the freezing winter, but open up for some air if it got too much - I find that with cowls sometimes.
I finished it yesterday (I don't see Alan until Tuesday so I haven't kept him waiting, honest!) and liked it so much I have listed it in my shops as a make to order item.
I'll also be writing out the pattern for knitters to make their own.

I even persuaded a very reluctant DH to pose for me wearing it :)

Wanna see the reluctance? ...

Tee Hee ... He wasn't happy :D

ARGHHH Glitches!

I wanted to let you all know that I am not actually selling items in my Etsy shop for $3000!! Talk about putting people off! 
I had been using an app from a website that alters all your listings in one go, to save you changing each one separately. Well it obviously had a glitch because it changed around 10 items in my shop to mega prices! It added 10's into the prices so if something was priced at $26.00, the app changed it to $2610.00 :O
So, I have not gone mad! I don't value my items like I think they are Gucci! I have sorted it all out and normality has resumed. 

Sale is still on! 10% off your order for all of August. Use coupon code SUMMERSALE at the checkout

Summer Sale

I am having a sale on my Etsy Shop. It will run for the whole of August (unless I run out of stuff :O)
It's just to promote my shop a bit and get rid of some summer stock so I can make room for autumn / winter items. 
If you make an order in my Etsy shop between now and 31st August 2011, use coupon code SUMMERSALE at the checkout.

And here's a picture of Kaden with some flowery shades :)

Cowl Up

New cowl in the making.
I have some King Cole Merino Blend DK in my stash and decided to knit it up into a cowl with a cable pattern.
I don't really use cable so it's new to me but going very well so far.
I have an idea to stop the cowl being a usual straight forward pull over the head type but I'm not going to give anything away just yet. Plus it might turn out poop!
Here is a taster photo for now :)
