My mum is a knitting genius

So, I cant knit, but mum can! She has crafted some wonderful knitted items and i wanted to show you a small selection.

Firstly are some fab neck warmers made for step daughters ski holiday.

In my opinion this is the best thing she has ever knitted and I would likes some for myself (subtle hint) Knitted converse! You read right, knitted converse.

This next item was crafted from a vintage pattern and was done in one of my favorite colour combinations, mustard and black. (Now, please excuse my face. It has a life of its own sometimes)


The following jumper was also made using a vintage pattern. We both loved so much, she had to knit two.


I needed a new hair style, but didn’t want to cut my hair. In a moment of madness this beauty was born.

The next two are being beautifully modeled by the dogs. The first a necklace/scarf and the second a cosy sofa blanket.

Next is another jumper from a vintage pattern. This is nice and lightweight and looks great in mint green.


When me and my sister were little we both loved my little pony, so mum knitted us each the best cardigan I have even owned.

Finally is my favorite thing mum knitted for me. I remember being about 7 and rummaging around in the cupboard under the stairs when i stumbled across this next item. I fell in love straight away but didn’t say anything in fear of being in trouble. To my absolute delight, I was presented with him later that day. He is old and battered and has lost his tail but I still love him.
