I completed two handmade gifts recently. I knitted the gloves for a favourite brother-in-law and this winter has certainly been cold enough to make them an appropriate gift! The pattern is Checkerboard Mitts by Helen Stewart and the link to my ravelry page is here.
The shawl was part of the 4-ply shawl club. It is the Southern Shawl by Truly Myrtle and the yarn is by Happy-go-knitty and is 50% silk and 50% merino. This was such a lovely pattern to knit and progressed quickly as the body of the shawl is quite simple. A very good friend is turning 50 this month so I have decided a hand knitted shawl will be the perfect gift for her. My ravelry page for this pattern is here.
here. I had some yarn left over so knitted myself fingerless gloves as I tend to have cold hands in winter! The pattern is called Donegal mitts and my details are here.
Thank you as always for stopping by, I hope you are keeping warm and dry, Wendy xx
