I know most of us knitters are less than enthusiastic when it comes to sewing, but sadly most knits require a little sewing. I was thrilled when Simply Knitting asked me to design some pretty sewing accessories for knitters. I was really really really pleased when my copy of the magazine arrived. My designs had become a self-contained pattern leaflet to accompany the cute free gift, a tape measure in a tin.
I used some left over sock yarn for this set, it gave me some interesting colour whilst keeping it simple.

Staying with the keeping organised theme, I have also designed some hanging baskets. These are also featured in issue 117 Simply Knitting. The baskets each take one ball of Rowan All Seasons Chunky.
