And here's my latest creation, an 80s retro tie as featured in the June 2010 edition of Simply Knitting Magazine. Isn't it fabulous? I have used the recommended yarn, just a different shade:
Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett, shade 04350, 2.5mm needles
And now that I've knitted my first ever tie, I can continue creating more contemporary designs. Surely my husband will rejoice.
