Since getting sick at the end of November, I haven't been able to do much of my cardmaking and papercrafting, but I have been knitting - lots !!
I currently have my sixth garment on the go since November and thought I'd share a couple of piccies with you as I've been asked exactly what I'm knitting.
This is the first jacket I made, I'd previously made one using this pattern in darker colours and liked it so much I thought I'd do another one.
As I had been well and truly bitten by the 'knitting bug' I then bought some gorgeous Baby Alpaca yarn and knitted this longline jumper with an asymetric hemline. I just loved working with this super soft yarn and it's great to wear as it keeps me warm but not overheated and is remarkably light. I do plan to knit more garments with this fabulous yarn.
The final project I'm sharing with you today is not quite finished as I need to press the parts before stitching up and knitting the roll collar. I am still not able to do ironing (shame!!) so can't complete it until I can. I put the pattern into the picture to show what the finished garment will look like. The yarn this time is a mixture of Alpaca, Silk and Wool - nice to work with but nowhere near as soft as the Baby Alpaca, although may be a little more hard wearing.
I knitted an Aran weight short sleeved tunic with lots of lovely cabling on the front but when I'd finished it I realised it was far too big for me and should have knitted a smaller size. So, I gave it to a friend who was delighted with it. I have knitted myself one now and will share a pic of that another day.
Hope you've enjoyed seeing some different projects today, thanks for dropping by.
