My Nan taught me to knit many years ago. She made all my soft toys and was so clever at making really detailed plushes with tiny little insects etc, she never failed to amaze me! I am continuing my Nans work by making my knitted creatures! In the 80's at the height of neon, I asked her to make me some snazzy accessories in the most amazing neon wool.

My Nan made me these.....
80's me!!!
Amazing scarf!!
And FAB legwarmers!!
I had some matching gloves too but have yet to find the pictures!!
Anyway my point behind this little trip down memory lane is that I have just finished my own creation in neon yarn....
Neon 80's day!!

I LOVE those legwarmers!! My nan or gran couldn't knit, but my mam did, and she never made anything that cool!! I love the refreashers creature too, and the 80's is the inspiration for my next challenge entry ;) (dont tell anyone!)
