Beautiful Projects – Gifts for winter

February 09, 2016

0 Comments

The new year seems like a time when knitting needles are particularly busy. It could be the cold weather, frantically trying to finish off gifts, or in my case, gleefully working on those projects I’ve been dreaming about for weeks, usually knits for me. It might commonly referred to as ‘selfish knitting’ but I prefer to think of it gift knitting for myself, or Maud-Bailey (from one of the projects below) calls it ‘gifts for winter.’ Knitting something for yourself isn’t selfish, its awesome! The projects this week were all cast on just after or on the holidays, and were made for the very person doing the making!

Every day I see a new Strokkur colour palette that makes me want to cast on another one! This gift for winter was made my Maud-Bailey, and its one of my new favourites.

These fantastic Hugni socks were made by Sylviemom – I love the bright contrast with the natural main colour.

A lovely squishy Sulionen, knit and worn by sokkenmuis – great if you need something for yourself, quickly!

It’s great to see people making Knitworthy patterns for themselves! This lovely Saudade was made for and knit by bevans59 with Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails. It’s the perfect project for little amounts of yarn.

And finally, another awesome Strokkur – this one knit by a very cosy-looking kidsgloves!

Birthday Sale Goes Live Today...

.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
