Angels and Demons part 2

I'm hoping I've now ended my technical problems by switching to the new blogger!!

Duplicate stitch - is this the same as Swiss darning?




Good








Bad





Angel 1















































Jessies Flame
Pattern Source: Stitch and Bitch Nation
Yarn used: Rowan Magpie Aran in black and red. Jaeger merino DK in yellow (used double) - all from stash
Started : sometime in January 07
Finished: 2nd February 07
Comments: Shortened body and sleeves and added a row of yellow to the neckband. God pattern instructions and Shea does not want to take it off - so what better credit than that!!


Angel 2

















I started out with a Celtic knot thing going on- until I tried to sew it in place!!



































And finished with Celtic spirals!!

Hooded Kaftan

Pattern Source: Debbie Bliss Special Knits
Yarn used: Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere from stash
Started: sometime in January 07
Finished : 2nd February 07
Comments: I now know I'm not an embroiderer!! The yarn makes the whole garment drape beautifully.

Lovely jumper and the baby jumper!.
I can't believe how much Shea looks like you, I've not noticed it before, but he's the spit of you in the photo with his arms crossed!
