Aran Jumper   Leave a comment

Hi there. Today I have posted a picture of an Aran jumper which will fit a 2-3 year old boy or girl. I decided to do it in yellow Aran wool as it is gender neutral and also it makes a change from using white or cream which are the traditional colours for Arans. I love all the bobbles and the honeycomb stitch too. I think Aran knitting is my favourite knitting to do, as it means I am not watching the television so much. I wonder what your favourite knitting is to do. I would love to hear.

If anyone needs any help at any time please do not hesitate to ask me either here on Facebook at Knitted Toys and Jumpers.

Sorry that this is a short post but I have other things to do today so until tomorrow, happy knitting.

It is a ¬†wet day here today in Bandon and quite breezy too. Still what can we do? We can’t control the weather mores the pity. Anyway to make the day a bit better here are some items I have knitted and crocheted a while back. The first picture is a child’s cardigan. I love this as it is knitted in one piece up to the armholes, I also like the pattern in it. I used 100% wool so it is nice and warm. The second is wool from Aldi. It is a lemon sparkle yarn and so easy to knit. I like the scallop edging on the neck and one button. The the next is something completely different, a crocheted owl. Some of my friends would tell you I love owls, and so of course I had to crochet one. They can be made in any colour which makes it fun really. Then we have the last picture which is my Christmas wreath which is always on my door only at Christmas!!, I decided to make a frosted looking wreath, so I used a grey sparkle and white sparkle wool, and knitted holly leaves and berries and I think it looks really good. That is all for today, so I hope you like these. It has started raining again so there is only one thing to do and that is to get back to the knitting. Talk to you all again soon. Enjoy your weekend whatever you may be doing.

Candle Holder   Leave a comment

I really enjoyed making these little tea light holders. They are made from beading wire, gauge 28. It was a bit hard to do at first as I had never used wire before to crochet with and actually didn’t know that you could crochet with wire. So it just goes to show, nothing is impossible. I think they would look nice outside on a wall if you were having a barbecue. I made them in purple and teal colours. I would love your feedback.

Baby Cardigan   Leave a comment

Here I am back again after a few years away from publishing anything. It is nice to be back too. The weather here in Bandon is a bit overcast, I hope it doesn’t rain.

Anyway, onto things knitting. As you might know I love knitting and crocheting, baby items in particular as they don’t take long to do and there is such a great range of wool

out there now to use.

This is my latest item which I finished while ago. It is a copied pattern. I used Rico Baby Prints which is 100% acrylic but so soft to use, so it will be nice and soft against baby’s skin. It is machine washable, but having said that I would use a very gentle wash.

If you are interested in it you can get in contact with me through Knitted Toys and Jumpers on Facebook.
