Hello friends, just popping by to wish you a merry Christmas and a very happy and healthy 2016. 2015 hasn’t been the easiest of years with family health issues to deal with so I’ve had less knitting time than usual. I’ve just been finishing off a few projects including Trent which I’ve knitted for my husband in Rowan Yarns Brushed Fleece, just in time for Christmas despite having to knit three sleeves! The first sleeve disappeared and I have no idea where it went so I had to buy more yarn and start again… luckily it was a quick and easy knit 😉 Here it is unblocked, but you get the general idea and it was the perfect cosy garment to wear whilst walking the dogs in the woods today.
If you haven’t knitted with Brushed Fleece before, I’d definitely recommend it. Its a very light and super soft blend of extra fine merino wool and baby alpaca with a soft marl colour effect. The colour my husband chose for Trent is called Peat 262. You can view the Brushed Fleece collection on Rowan’s website which includes 16 knits for men and women including wraps, shrugs, capes, sweater dresses and cardigans designed by Martin Storey.
Hope to be back soon with some more ‘finished knits’ and I’m also going to sign up for the second Martin Storey Knit-a-Long starting on 28th January; details here: http://www.knitrowan.com/news/martin-storey-knit-along-2-%E2%80%93-official-announcement-image What are everyone’s knitting plans for next year?
Merry Christmas and see you in 2016! xx
