Is it just me, or has anyone else got stuck into a load of brand new box sets to pass the time? One of my favourites right now is Fame - I have started to fall in love with everything about the eighties and have even started a jumper inspired by the decade!
For those of you that are new to knitting, making a jumper is not nearly as daunting as it sounds - it very similar to the flat mitten in the sense that you do the same types of stitch and structure. It is just on a larger scale and consists of more parts. Below are the colours I am using for the jumper
The yarn is Number One DK. You dont have to wait until lockdown is over as we can send out, drop off or you can collect from the shop 7 days a week. Use the contact us form to tell us what you would like.
I recommend you get some. It is super soft, easy to work with and there are 20+ colours available, all of which we stock. My jumper consists of a variety of thick and thin stripes of colour, white ribs and a white collar. For those of you that are experienced knitters, it is dropped sleeve (keeping true to the decade!) and may be twisted at the back, though I have not decided quite yet. When it is finished, I'll let you know and upload a few photos.
Can't wait to write again, but until next time, happy knitting!
