I was heavily pregnant with my son in mid-Autumn. At that time I had a hard time finding pretty things that fit me, kept me warm and were fashionable. After his birth, I found breastfeeding in winter to be freezing. Ponchos and jumpers just got in the way of breastfeeding. I got sick of wearing tracksuit material, or stretchy fabric and I had a definite shortage of cardigans or boleros to at least keep my arms warm. My friend Ruth is due to have her son in mid-winter. She feels the cold more than I do. I designed this bolero to keep her warm. This pattern does not have to be worn by a pregnant woman or a new mother - it is suitable for anyone and can be dressed up or down - but it does make a nice gift for the mother to be or new mother in your life. Happy Mother's Day!

I rarely repeat a pattern - I always enjoy the challenge of making something new and different. I love functional aesthetics. A design should be useful at the same time as expressing the beauty and personality of the creator and the owner. I love my husband, sons and cat and I love creating yarn projects for my family. I am a handbag addict, into kickboxing, Doctor Who, reading, cooking, gardening and of course kitting and crochet.
