This old brewery that we live in is cold, properly cold. One winter we had ice on the inside of the window panes, something I half-remembered happening in childhood but had thought I must have imagined until it happened again here, in our bedroom, two years ago.
Times like this, I have to stop knitting/crocheting housey stuff and make warm clothes for the twinnage. Actually it’s weirdly mild here in the UK here at the moment, but it still manages to be chilly in the house, and I do live in hope of some snow landing this winter.
So I’ve made jumpers for the boys:-
The pattern, for those on Ravelry, is Jamie, by Katy Farrell. T’was a well-written, easy pattern. It’s quite a simple design, that I chose in order to show off the variegation in the yarn. The yarn is Adriafil Knitcol, one of those ugly-duckling-to-beautiful-swan yarns I’ve blogged about before.
Here’s a shot of the moss stitch collar:-
And the contrasting yarns used for the two garments:-
That was fun, but now I want to play with yarn for housey projects again. 🙂
