I’ve not been blogging for a while but I have been knitting – pictured above is the finished Shaftesbury in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, I have loved knitting with this wool and am pleased with the result. I do wish that I had made the sleeves longer though! Anyway, i’m going to wet block it so it should be a lot better when that’s done, looks good on though!
Pictured aboove are a couple of big slouchy berets I made using my 20mm needles. They are from the pattern in the latest ‘Lets Knit’ magazine and knit up super quick in just under and hour each. I used Rowan Ribbon Twist and Rowan Spray, 100g each hat, a good stash buster!
This is my Christmas project, the tank top from Twilleys Freedom Spirit pattern book in ‘fire’. This is the yarn I had from my abandoned project of the Chevron Jacket (I just hated knitting it and really struggled with the increases, so I admitted defeat and decided to try this instead!) I’m glad I abandoned the other project actually, I like the simplicity of this pattern and the simple stocking stitch really shows off the fab colours.
I also intend to make the hat abouve in this other colourway, It only takes two 50g balls and I’m totally in love with Freedom Spirit wool!
I’m off to relatives tomorrow for Christmas, then on Christmas eve travelling up to Lincolnshire to spend Christmas with my boyfriends family, I should Imagine I will have some progress photos for the new year if not before – Merry Christmas!
