the etsy twitter team are holding a St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt. Click on the Link to find the participating shops and then hunt for this little guy:



There are 10 hidden within the items of the 27 participating shops – find them all and there are some great prizes to be won.

No purchase necessary – but I dare you not to buy something whilst you are browsing.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day …



… for the Bliss/Knitting Institute Preemie set design competition … and I didn’t win.

The Winner!

The Winner!

The winning set is very cute and by Teresa Channell. I love the little button and strap detail on the booties and the cardigan looks as though it is knitted in one piece.


The blurb in the magazine states that they had a very long shortlist and there was a picture of the judges looking at the entries – I spied my set in the bottom right hand corner (the green one with the mistake in – eek). I’ve tried to take a photo (below) but it isn’t very clear. The top 3 entries are going to be put on the Bliss website as patterns for people to use when making premature baby sets for hospitals.

My entry?
My entry?

If you’ve had a go at my pattern please let me know how it worked out – it was my first attempt so I am eager to learn more.
