My latest project: A Feeder Cover Version!

Last week I took a little break from the needles and did a different kind of project - recording a cover version of Feeder's Silent Cry.

A few years ago I did a few cover versions of Feeder songs for a fan tribute CD, A Place Inside Our Minds. The lad who organised it got in touch with me recently and asked if would be interested in doing another track I haven't done any music in ages and thought it would be nice to dust off the old gear and give it a go.

6 days and a lot of hard work later my DH and I produced this. Enjoy!

FREE Shorties and Longies Pattern

I've decided to share my DK shorties and Longies pattern with the world. I wrote it a few years ago and it's been through a few minor changes since then but it's very easy to do and it works.

It's great for beginner knitters as it's knitted flat (no scary double pins or kitchener grafting!) and being flat it means you can easily work cute intarsia designs or add embroidery to make an extra special pair of woollies.

You can download the pattern as a PDF file HERE. Please remember it is royalty free but not Copyright free. You may not distribute, copy or sell the pattern or use it to produce garments for sale.

I hope you enjoy it! Any comments or suggestions, good or bad gratefully received.
