Festive Stockings

Some ickle festive stockings for the Christmas tree

Bride and Groom

I think this may be my most important commission to date - to knit the cake toppers for a good friend's wedding. They loved them. And I'm chuffed to bits.

Chocolate Gateau

The ultimate in guilt-free chocolate cake - a knitted option! High in fibre and low in calories. Everyone's a winner.

Darius Danesh/Campbell

Another slightly more unconventional commission - to knit Darius Danesh/Campbell in all his kilted Scottish glory.

The Archbishop of Canterbury. In no way does he look like Rolf Harris. Or a sex offender...
