When Vicky announced that Mary would soon be making her entrance into the world, I got straight to work on this Reversible Alpaca Blanket in my favorite colour, mustard. The pattern is downloadable for free on Ravelry or here ‘Reversible Cable and Lace Afghan’
A variation on the brioche stitch (aka fisherman’s rib in British english or cotes Anglaises in french) this fun technique uses the ‘knit one below’ method to create a bulkier, warmer texture. Knitted in the Anny Blatt Nunki Yarn in colours Camel and Bettrave.
Thoroughly enjoyable to knit and the children helped make their own pompoms to finish them off. More to come without a doubt.
Pattern available for free on Ravelry by That Metzbower Girl Designs
This is the same pattern as Fisherman Jumper posted on 16/03/2016.
Monty’s Jumper was made in the same wool in (my favourite colour) Mustard. I added some stripes to help with to the nautical theme. Hopefully Monty’s mum will send some photos of him wearing it that I can add later… I hope Monty likes it…!
The pattern named ‘Diggory’ is available for download on the Berocco Website and is also available on Ravelry
The hopes that my children will enjoy sewing as much as myself have finally come true. My daughter’s first sewing project was a bed for her mouse. We spent Sunday making a knitted bed and a blanket-stitched pillow. Happy days.
Just finished this Icelandic jumper in time for the arrival of spring. The pattern comes from a free Ravelry download by Maria Vangen. I tweaked the pattern slightly to include hearts in the design.
Many thanks to While they Play’s You Tube tutorials … I used the ‘stretchy rib cast on’ and ‘stretchy rib bind off’ videos to teach me how to knit the ribbing with an ultra flexible edge.
Here is a photo of the completed knitted patchwork blanket. The pattern is a free download by Lion Brand Yarns called Patchwork Sampler Throw in the category ‘Knitting Patterns for the Home’ on their website. The blanket was posted on my blog last year at it’s halfway stage. I’m happy it’s finished. Now I just need to decide who to give it to!
The patchwork blanket is now officially finished! Photos coming soon…
Here is a sneaky peek of the next project cast on…
Romeo will love his heart jumper in Icelandic Lopi…
This summer dress combines two of my favorite hobbies: The bodice is knitted in seed stitch and the skirt is sewn on after. Plume wore this on the beach all summer.
