Winter has well and truly set in now in Melbourne.
I’m wearing a scarf and beanie most days.
I guess I am pretty lucky that I have a few to choose from, as I am constantly knitting up samples or looking for simple knit styles.
I know the stores are full of acrylic knitwear made in China, but there is something extremely comforting about wearing a hand knitted winter accessory.
It’s hard to explain – there is an element of care and genuine love that seems to be embedded in the fibres of hand knitting.
Also if you have knitted the accessory yourself there is a huge an element of pride and self sustenance involved. Extra points if someone compliments your knit wear – but not even necessary to make you feel good.
So if you’d like to share to feel the love of hand knit winter warmers have a look at the knitting kits I have put together. Something for yourself or maybe the perfect knitted gift.
The patterns are super simple and I have made video tutorials if you need help.
The yarns are beautiful quality and I have selected a small but charming colour palette.
The projects are deliberately small so you can knit and complete and enjoy your efforts. (Instead of being left in a bag as something you’ll finish one day… )
Enjoy your southern hemisphere winter and give yourself a big woolly knitted hug!
So many pictures of me, I do apologise! I need to find an in-house model to do justice to the garments!
