I’m a very spoilt girl, for my birthday my lovely friends Jai and David got me a liberty coin (a posh gift voucher), very exciting! They thought I would like to buy something crafty, they were right.
I have decided to knit myself an item of clothing, this is quite ambitious as I have yet to see a hand knitted jumper or cardigan (apart from on ravlery) which isn’t hideous, but I’m going to give it a go.
But I can’t decide, these are my shortlist:
The Olive, not massively exciting but a lovely shape and might be good to keep it simple, this would be lovely in a really soft wool and because it’s plain I would wear it a lot (assuming it;s not a complete disaster…)
An Ysolda pattern, I think this is really pretty but maybe not that practical, not sure what colours I would use either.
Not strictly a jumper I know but if you look on ravelry at the completed projects it turns out really well, would look nice with opaque tights or leggings.
The Manu sweater, really cute and I like that I would get to choose pretty buttons too.
Okay so I’m never going to make this but I LOVE it, she spent loads of time on this and it’s amazing – check out her ‘recipe’
So ‘vote now!’, I’m going to spend quite a lot of money and time on this, I probably won’t start it until autumn but I need to make sure I get the right yarn and psych myself up for it. Grrr!
