Penguono jacket

I wanted to find a project to use my blue scraps of yarn. When I saw Nappy knitter post on Instagram, i wanted to do the penguono jacket in shades of blues. The pattern is from West Knits and it is very fun to make : alll the part are assembled while knitting so when you bind off the…

Wedding blanket

At our weddings, my family had asked all the guests to come with a bottle of wine and a ball of wool ! Such a great idea !  All the wool was different – different colours and different quality- and I wanted to keep it all together in a project that would remind us of…

2 bandanas = 1 shawl 

It is still quite cold and stormy in Belfast in February so I knitted a comfy and warm shawl to wait for spring to come.  I really liked the design for the “say wool be there” bandana but I knew it was going to be to small as it is and I would never wear…

Amélie dress

Another Christmas present that was given to me was the kit to knit the Amelie dress from wool and the gang.   The dress is so confortable. It is however a bit see through so I wear it on top a black top and a pair of black jeans. 

Même pas froid 

My sister offered me a really nice knitting kit for Christmas. The kit is from Peace and wool and it is to make a giant snood. I love the colour she had chosen : a beautiful green !  It is knitted with 15mm needles and the finished snood is super warm !

Pom-pom clutch 

I added some pom-poms to the Lil’ hold tight clutch from Wool and the gang.  I really like the woven stitch : it feels so sturdy.  I also had a strap from on old broken bag that I can reuse with it !

Polar bear 

The last issue of Mollie makes had a interesting pattern to make a knitted polar bear designed by Sincerely Louise. I liked the animal heads she designs as well so making this bear was a good way to discover this designer world !  My bear has two colours as I used only yarn I had left over from…

After crocheting the Summer cardigan by Anna Wilkinson, I have knitted a fair isle short sleeve sweater by the same designer.  Compare to the original colours, I have chosen dark navy and mairmaid ! The wrong side of the knitting

Cable knit pillows

We got a new sofa a few months back so I wanted to make some super soft pillows to make it ours. I used a ball of sexy crazy wool for each pillow : one in stonewach blue and one in sherpa blue. I bought the wool during a sale on the Wool and the…

Nolita Sweater

In June We are knitters had a 30% discount on all its website so I could not resist getting the Nolita sweater kit in Aquamarine. It was a very quick make and now that the weather starts to cool off in Belfast, I will be able to wear it soon !  

Blue squirrel

With the rest of the grey wool from my summer cardigan, I have knitted a simple square and embroidered a squirrel with big cross-stitches to make a pillow for our new sofa. I really like this model from Erin Black. She used Tunisian crochet but I did not have enough wool to use this technique…
