Jumper for T

This Jumper was knitted for a friend in 2005.She showed me this picture and then my mother in law wrote the pattern for it. It was allot of work and never really came out right, I think I knitted it with heirloom yarn on maybe 5.5mm needles.



I started spinning in 2005. I went to a weekend workshop offered by the local guild. This scarf was knitted up out of my first hand-spun. I gave it to my mum and she like a good mother made all the right noises about it and even wore it a bit….

I then went on to make a variety of weird (and I thought wonderful) objects for my long suffering Friends…



wrong yarn sub

I had  some adventures with Yarn substitution this year. This is what can happen when you make the wrong choice. (the book is for size reference).



I also created some nice “knitlaces” by knitting i-cords with bouton dor Trevi yarn.
