Description

Knitting is so relaxing, and portable! I knit my way through some long bus journeys on a recent trip to Iceland and I regularly knit my way across Ireland on weekend car journeys.
The results vary and here are a couple of recent Scandinavian style sweaters. Both reindeer and flowers are a big hit and this Drops Air alpaca wool is sooo toastie. I’ll be back to sewing very soon.

    Just gorgeous. I knit as well.but I haven’t done in years as my sewing just took over. These are stunning. My mum was a fabulous knitter and she knit aran plus these. Even our dolls had matching knits.fantastic Christie xx

    Fun to see both of you in the photos! You are reminding me of Meg Zimmermann & her late Mum, Elizabeth. They both were regular contributors to Vogue Knitting articles and projects. Socks come to mind and sweaters too. Thanks for sharing your work!

    Wow, that’s freaking amazing!! I loooove Fair Isle. However I only made a Fair Isle hat – I didn’t dare to make sweater, looks so complicated and time consuming for me. :$
