I'm more than a little bit over-excited this afternoon! I've just received my subscriber copy of Simply Knitting, and it's got 3 of my designs in it, and Murcott is on the preview page for next month's issue. I shall do a proper post about it next week, when the issue is available in the shops. And that came on top of yesterday's The Knitter and the new Interweave Knits. I just need some time to sit and read them all now!
Anyway, the design I would like to share with you today is called Filkins. It's a large wrap, knitted in Scrumptious Aran. There are two sizes available - the large size is shown here and uses 4 hanks of Aran, and there is a small size using just 2 hanks of Aran.
I fell in love with the idea of strings of circles and joining them to make a generous, warm and snuggly wrap. Kim did a fantastic job of knitting the sample for me (she also knitted Murcott & Chinnor).
We gave printing approval on the book this morning, so we are hoping to start taking orders at some point next week. Never fear, I will keep you all posted. Hope you have some time for crafting this weekend!
