About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Another Shawlette

Evening Peeps. Another glorious day although a little more comfortable with the gentle breeze.

Here's another shawlette I've made, this time knitted in a fab 'eyelash' type wool. Beads just didn't work for this one as they were overshadowed by the yarn, so instead I made a tassle out of a similar wool that has a silver thread running through it.

The only problem now is I'll have to wait until the weather cools down before I can wear it.

Hope you like it and see you again soon, x


  1. Woo hoo, very innovative and "designerly". It looks like it would be ideal for a special occasion night out with a lovely evening dress. Planning anything that you haven't told us about?
    Love Jo x

  2. Wow Alison, that's glam. I've still got one on the go but hard to get motivated knitting shawlettes in temperatures like this week's.

  3. It looks great, Alison and very glam as Jo and Ann have said! Mine's making progress but very slowly.

  4. Not a clue what a shawlette is but this looks very elegant. Very Glam! Can't wait to see you wearing it all dressed up and that. Super!

  5. This is gorgeous Alison I love the colour. It was great meeting you today and I am now a follower too.
