For your Wellies...

Back then

and Now 

One of my favorite 
"last minute Christmas gifts"
I knit this year were these 
 Hunter Boot toppers.  
The adorable "Cali girl" recipient loves them!

You can find the pattern here on Ravelry:

What would Jane knit?

Jane Austen Knits

It's no secret that I adore Jane Austen.

Today is Jane's birthday.  
She was born on December 16th, 1775 in Hampshire, England. 

In honor of Jane's birthday today, 
I'm curling up with a good cup of English Afternoon Tea,
my knitting and 
 the movie Pride and Prejudice featuring Colin Firth, 
as my favorite Mr. Darcy!

I also love the magazine Jane Austen Knits that debuted last year.  
Since it's Jane's birthday today, 
I thought I would share with you where you can find a
Jane Austen treat for yourself.  
Just click here 
and you can get a free download of the scarf pattern 
from the cover of the premier issue of 
Jane Austen Knits Magazine from 2011.
