Fancy Nancies

This is my everyday, Knitting Nancy. She and I have been going steady since she was handmade by a friend's dad and given to me in 2003.

Then about two months ago I was kindly given these Fancy Nancies by another friend's sister. At first I had no idea what to do. I thought they all had to be used at the same time. I seriously had no idea how to even begin. It's true I could have googled or asked around some seasoned crafty types, but I never quite got around to it.

Then when my friend Vivienne very generously gave me her red case of knitting goodies, inspiration struck. Ta da!

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it. Maybe a snood, maybe a skirt. My knitting group is coming here tonight and I look forward to talking through my ideas with them. I'll let you know what they say.

Wow, it looks amazing, whatever it is. Too big to be an egg cosy. Hope the knitting group goes well.

Your main squeeze looks like a beauty! But I can see why you were attracted to the more colourful one too, it looks very fancy pantsy. Perhaps you could make a full body glove and pretend to be a witchity grub. Just a thought...x

That is the best thing I have *ever* seen, Meg! Where do I get one? Do you know if they're available anywhere online? How about a hat for your grey one?

Beck! I lust love the witchity grub idea.

And hi Feronia! I think you can buy them at Spotlight.
