From picking up the Milla Mia wool, casting on, knitting, finishing up and blocking this tidy little baby knit took me all of a week. Who doesn’t love a quick knit! I’ve since gifted this deep plum cardigan to my friend’s baby girl, who I’m assured looks jammin’ in it. And the process was so quick and easy, I’m tempted to make it in larger sizes!
This week’s a bit of an Instagram-heavy Knitwear faves, but that’s where I’ve been heading for me daily dose of knitspiration recently.
We all have those films we revisit again and again. Films we know all of the words to, ruin for new watchers with the immortal lines ‘this is a really good bit’… you know the ones.
Well, these happen to be perfect films to knit to, because we all know that once you get absorbed in a good knitting project, you lift your head up to the TV and half the film’s gone by. (Mr Shortrounds must get so fed up of me constantly asking him ‘what just happened?’)
So I wanted to share with you my list of ‘watch again and again’ films that I never get bored of and love to knit to!
Four things that I’ve spotted and deemed Knitwear Faves for this week:
Before I write any more, can we just take a moment to appreciate this perfect cobalt blue shade?! When I unwrapped this little beauty I took a full minute turning the ball of Rowan Fine Silk over and over in my hands just watching it change colour with the light. Like most silks this new Rowan yarn has a delicate sheen, but is combined with wool to give it a greater tensile strength than most silks I’ve worked with previously. Laughing Hens very kindly sent me a ball of this lovely yarn in its stunning ‘Peacock’ colourway to get creative with!
