eden's Been Released

You may have seen me blogging about test knitting 'Simplicity' for tikki recently here and here

Here's a couple of pics to refresh your memory

Well, the pattern was released yesterday with it's new name 'eden'. Eden comes as an e-book with 2 different patterns, eden's adam for the singlet/vest version, and eden's eve for a dress (watch out for an example of this one in the next couple of weeks hopefully)

From tikki's blog:
"Both share the same starting point in the pattern and are knit on 3.25mm needles and 4mm needles.

The pattern is primarily written for cotton or cotton blend yarns and the beauty of this pattern (I think) is that you can actually knit the garment in either 4ply, 5ply, 8ply or 10 ply yarn for the same sizing. It is also suitable for wool, but I would recommend the 4, 5 or 8ply for that for a suitable end fabric.

The pattern also comes with a palette of ideas at the end on how you can individualise your own eden, think stripe ideas, pockets, embellishment, hemlines"

Now for the exciting news - the lovely Georgie has gifted me a cottage license for the eden patterns as thanks for the test knitting which means I'll be knitting them for sale soon! Watch this space for more updates. Thanks Georgie!

Hey, and Georgie is also running yet another fabulous competition over on her blog for eden, pop over there and have a look
