Here is a diamond shaped cloth with a lacy edging, worked in a magic double-sided stocking stitch. This gives it double thickness, all from a little slip-stitch.

Following on from the Three Reversible Cloths, I wanted to design a circular dishcloth with a lace element. I also wanted it to be reversible - who doesn't love a reversible cloth?

I've just finished this stripey 1940s short sleeved cardigan in 4-ply angora. This was commissioned by a friend who does historical re-enactments, putting together a 1940s outfit. She chose the pattern, the colours and the buttons, which saved me a lot of time as I am hopeless at putting colours together!
I love the gathering effect on the waist and sleeve cuffs, and also the fabulous pleat in the shoulders.
