Years ago, before I knew how to knit, I used to hate those sewing blogs who posted knitted things as well! I liked browsing the old blog posts full of sewing, but the moment I saw some knitting it put me off. But now I do know how to knit and have learned to love it. At this moment I really love it when someone shows her knitted stuff along with her homemade clothes.
My winterbird mittens
Project details are on my Ravelry page (you need to be a member to view it). It was a hybrid from this pattern and this pattern. They turned out great! I've made a knitted lining for it (exactly the same pattern, but in one colour), so it's extra warm. And boy, did I need that on the day these pictures were taken. Such a cold wind!
The Quick Knit 1940's jumper
Ravelry details are here. This jumper is made using the pattern from Flossy and Dossy. I wanted to make a 1940's style jumper to wear to re-enactment events and something that would be quick to make. Et voilà! It took no time at all to make this and it's a very easy mock cable knit that's easy to remember. Knitted this whilst waiting for my part in a movie as an extra.
A very easy to knit beret using my leftover yarns of the Quick knit jumper.
