Cinderella in the buff!

If you are a long-term reader, you might remember I won the Storytellers knitting design competition over at Purlescence, with my Cinderella Stockings.

Well, the pattern is about to get a bit more ... ahem... exposure... in the Knitting Noras' 2010 Naked Knit calendar! Julie (Dannikins on Ravelry) has made a pair of Cinders' stockings in sizzling red which her brave friend Francesca will wear for this project. They look fab!

Proceeds are going to the Christie Hospital in Manchester, one of Europe's leading cancer hospitals, which treats over 40,000 people a year .

You can learn more about the Knitting Noras on BBC1 this Thursday at 9pm in the "Calendar Girls 10 Years On" programme.

Pre-order the calendar here!

Hi Roobeedoo
Just thought I'd let you know that the shot of Francesca in those fabulous stockings was taken today :) so thanks for letting us use the pattern :) the picture features Francesca in the stockings with her boyfriend Adam in a pair of hiking socks also knitted by Julie. Lisa x
