Pattern testers wanted!

Some might remember my knitted Photography Gloves, posted back in March. The idea is that a couple of the fingertips are missing, to keep hands toasty warm, and fingers free to use your phone or camera. I've sold a few knitting patterns, but not had any feedback yet, and it would be great to see other versions of the gloves!  These work incredibly well with all smartphones and iPhones too :)

If anyone would like to have a go at knitting the gloves for free, get on over to the Ravelry Testers Group, post in the Photography Gloves thread and I'll send you over the pattern!

*edit - The Ravelry thread has now closed.  You can purchase the pattern here, thanks!

Nordic Lace Mittens Pattern now available

It's only taken me 6 months to get it tested and up on the patterns page, but FINALLY you can purchase the knitting pattern for the Nordic Lace Mittens! Once you've finished, you might fancy making the Nordic Lace Hat too!  This simple stitch is a good one for knitters new to lace knitting.  As it is only an 8 row repeat, the pattern is easy to memorise and quick to knit up using double knitting weight yarn.
Watch this space, I'm currently knitting a matching lace cowl pattern ;-)
