This cute and lovely design from prjaga.ru captures my heart – this is the perfect pattern for me to knit a pair of baby booties for a new born of a friend of mine, and the clear instructions simply facilitate my knitting. My choice of yarn is the hand-dyed variegated Irish Townhouse yarns bought in This Is Knit in Dublin, which comprises 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon.
I came across this wonderfully hand-dyed Irish Townhouse yarns called Forest Trails in This Is Knit in Dublin. What a lovely name to reflect the colour! I knitted this scarf with wavy drop stitches for my partner as his birthday gift, but I think both men and women can wear it as the colour tone is pretty neutral. This double-knit yarn comprises 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon.
Art Deco always fascinates me, and I’m glad that I can apply it on knitting. I knitted the Parelli Shawl from the book Art Deco Knits: Creating a Hand-knit Wardrobe Inspired by the 1920s-1930s by Jemima Bicknell. The leafy pattern is classic and timeless. Knitting with laceweight yarn is challenging but the fineness of the completed piece worth all my time and effort.
It is always tricky to knit with variegated yarns as it is difficult to find a knitted pattern that matches well with the colour changes of the yarn. Same as Forest Trails, I knitted this scarf with wavy drop stitches, which I found the outcome playful yet decent. The hand-dyed Irish yarn is also from Townhouse yarns bought in This Is Knit in Dublin.
I’m truly a fan of Woolly Wormhead; her creations are simply amazing. I bought the Rhinebeck Hat pattern and finally finished knitting myself a Rhinebeck Hat! The hand-dyed double-knit Irish yarns are from Townhouse yarns bought in This Is Knit in Dublin.
I found this beautiful rib and fan pattern at Drops Design called Winter Dunes and decided to give it a go. It’s a bit slouchy yet stylish. The creamy colour is simply unbeatable. I’m also using the hand-dyed variegated Irish Townhouse yarns bought in This Is Knit in Dublin, which comprises 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon.
Pom-pom Hat for Her
I find knitting more fun after moving to Dublin. There is greater satisfaction of being able to use more frequently the knitted products in Ireland than in Hong Kong, which has temperate climate. I found some beautiful pastel colour superwash wool in Søstrene Grene, and my immediate idea was a playful pom-pom hat. The hat is simply knitted in 2 x 2 rib stitch pattern; the mixed colour pom-pom is certainly a highlight.
Beanie for Him
Grey is always a safe option for men’s hat. This beanie hat is knitted in 2 x 2 rib stitch pattern with natural Aran wool made in England.
