Knitting New: Knitted Harry and Meghan

With the royal wedding come and gone, designer Fiona Goble has designed a knitted version of the bride and groom, right down to the engagement ring on Meghan’s finger. The wedding was spectacular, and what better way to recall it in all its splendor than with dolls representing the happy couple? This design is a follow up to Fiona’s 2011 book “Knit Your Own Royal Wedding” after William and Kate’s. The pattern for the Harry and Meghan dolls costs $4.00, and is available for download at fionagoble.com.

 

Just curious…. whose dress did you like better, Kate’s or Meghan’s?

Lovecats Cowl Kit

I hardly ever promote products here at Dances with Wools, but when I saw this cowl, I just had to post it. The designer, Caroline Sommerfield, is a dedicated animal rights activist. She created a line of cat and dog colored yarns called – what else? – Meow and Woof, and donates proceeds to rescue and adoption agencies, spaying and neutering programs, and trap-neuter-return programs that support feral cat colonies with safe shelter, food, and vet care. What a brilliant way to combine the love of knitting with love of animals! Those two things are also close to my own heart; hence, this post.

This particular cowl is made in Silver Tabby Ursula, and features tabby style stripes interspersed with little  paw prints. Caroline’s company, Ancient Arts Fiber Crafts , features other kitty color ways in the Meow line, as well as an array of other yarns, patterns, and kits, along with a list of retailers.

You can order the Lovecats Cowl Kit , which is $39.99, here .
