Number one: The plain and simple pullover. Love this pattern, and loved this top. Sadly it came to a sticky end when accidentally put in the wash.....fits me like a cropped top now which does not go well with my physique. Haven't decided whether to recycle it into a cushion or pass it on yet!
The bramblewood vest, coincidentally I am wearing it as I write - I love this top and am very tempted to make another one soon. Never thought I'd be a lime green kind of girl, but this yarn can make anyone fall in love with bright colours, its Punta Merisoft, my favourite!
Kate Davies, this is another one that will almost definitely get made again.
Irish Coffee, and has become another of my wardrobe staples. The colour is scrummy and it fits great too. I am very fond of several other of Thea Colman's designs - who'd have thought I'd have a soft sport for snuggly sweaters?!
(You may have noticed that all of my efforts have had short sleeves thus far - this is NOT cheating! Why? Because I said so!).
This one hasn't been gifted yet, it was made with a little boy in mind, but sadly he was inconsiderate enough to keep growing while I was knitting - how rude! If anyone has a littl'un in need of a cotton baseball style stripey tee - let me know!
Sage Remedy Top, and (yet again) I quite want one for myself too!
Dance of Robots for my nephew; a Sunnyside cardigan for my cousin's newborn and a Little sister dress for my niece. All great free patterns, well-written and with lots of scope for playing with colours.
Shalor by Penny Straker. And the finished sweater (if I do say so myself) is fabulous. I wore it to work on Tuesday just to pretend that it was mine, before handing it on to the lucky recipient. Obviously it can't possibly look as good on him, cos all sweaters look better on women (its a boob thing
!), but I think he'll love it nonetheless. He'd better!
And yes, those of you paying attention will have noticed that I none of my 11 were for Paul. No, he hasn't fallen out of favour......his new cardigan is number 12, and hopefully will be done before winter passes so he can get some use out of it.....
Right, back to the needles. Night all. x
PS. If someone can let blogger know that 'snuggly' and 'scrummy' are definitely valid words that don't require spell-checking that would be lovely.
