My favourite knitting projects are those by Claire Montgomery, and I've now finished two projects from her book Easy Kids Knits.
Winter has called for some serious scarf knitting. First scarf to be done is for my daughter...
A very simple scarf - just garter stitch with some crochet edging to hold the pockets together. Bendigo Woolen Mills yarn - 12ply. Raveled here. The maroon colour (not my normal colour choice!) is to match her school colours so she can happily wear it at school. And I love the orange contrast colour edging. It's nice and stretchy and wraps quite happily around her neck. She's been very diligent about taking it to and from school. Melbourne weather has gone very very cold, so a warm, loved scarf is timely.
My other project - a v-neck sweater - is also from Easy Kids Knits. It's my first ever knitted sweater - and the first time I've joined together knitted pieces. Its a 'boys' sweater, but I've just made it purple.
My next quick knit project is a scarf for Hubby - another simple garter stitch scarf with Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn.
Are you crafting up any winter type clothes? Or maybe you have warmer weather coming? Lucky duck!
