Hello! And Happy 2015!!
I feel very inspired at the moment and can’t wait to see what lovely knitting this year has in store!
2014 was a brilliant year for knitting here at The Knitted Jumper! I’m hoping to blog about some of the latest things in the coming weeks as I am SERIOUSLY behind, but in the meantime here is a summary:
- Knitted animal hats (Les chapeaux des animaux)
- Christmas jumpers
- Winter woollies
- Little hats for the Big Knit campaign
- A small *read ill-fitting* jumper
- Knitted secret Santa and
- The Knitting and Stitching show, to name just a few!
I have some equally exciting things planned for 2015, a few of which are on the On The Needles In The Pipeline page. At the moment I am one mitten through knitting some houndstooth mittens. I am quite excited about these as A. I love houndstooth, b. this is kind of my own pattern and c. I am making them using my stash (hurrah!!).
I am also going to be knitting a baby shawl/blanket for my friend. I have found a gorgeous 1930’s pattern on The Vintage Knitting Lady website and am hoping to knit this in a lovely bright colour. This will be my first attempt at lace so I’m very excited!
I also got given this lovely crochet kit by J’s sister. I think this was a ‘please can you make this for my daughter’ present, but as I eventually would like to crochet some of Edward’s Menagerie I think this is a great place to start!
One of my favourite gifts this Christmas was this amazing Dashing Dachshund knit kit from Baa Ram Ewe. I can’t wait to start knitting this cute pooch, I just hope I do him justice!
This will hopefully just be the beginning of my woolly adventures for 2015! If this is the start I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds! I hope you all of lots of lovely knitting in-store for 2015! I can’t wait to see everyone’s finished projects!!
