I was commissioned to knit a jumper in the style of the one that Hugh FW has been wearing recently in his TV series
This is the one, you can see the top of it here - a plain sleeveless jumper, but knitted in beautiful wool, possibly dyed with natural dyes - it has that air about it and I love it.
This is my version, soon to be en route to my customer:
Worked in Manx Loughtan wool, produced organically here in Dorset, just up the raod from me. I used a truly vintage pattern, and am delighted, and I think it will become one of my standby patterns and get a lot of use - very versatile, lending itself ot all sorts of variations, colour and pattern wise.
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
