The windows at Liberty are always exceptionally inspiring, yet this simple yet stylish mannequin evokes the summer season succinctly! Lace and pleats and hues of henna and cinnamon. ! Certainly inspiring me to get creative with crochet!
Now, I don't suggest for a moment that I will be creating granny square balaclavas, more like lace trims, delicate accessories and pretty tops in stitches and textures reminiscent of aged Maltese facades [ not falcons either] in faded tones of terracotta!
Check out Rowan Mag 49 for one I made earlier.....

Sartorial Stitches

Have been working my way through 21 classic movies by the late and fabulous Cary Grant,
a definitive box set gifted to me this Xmas by my equally fab bro!
And amongst the gems, [fave to date is 'That touch of Mink' ] have come across this wonderful image of the suave and sophisticated king of sartorial style himself, and he's knitting! Made my day!!
Who wouldn't want to pick his stitches up!
