I have updated my website. I think I may have become carried away with the new features that Wix offers. All I wanted to do was create a links page like the one in Nigella Lawson's Instagram bio but, at the moment, I can't work out how to do it.

I have put another pattern onto Ravelry. 

This hat design has waited several years to be knitted. I designed this skull and a robot beanie several years ago, but I wasn't sure who would wear them. I collected images of sugar skulls and monsters on my Pinterest board and...

I have done it! I have put a pattern onto Ravelry. 

I haven't managed to get a link onto this site yet or even get it published onto Love Knitting, but I have taken the plunge.

It is quite a basic beret pattern, and I was worried that as a pattern it was not very excitin...
