Share the Love:

Back in September, we asked you to post your favourite projects and add the HotTag “MyProudestAchievement” and in the ensuing weeks we’ve received hundreds of amazing entries. Below are the lucky winners!

 

Baby Blanket by Jojo

Baby blanket by Jojo

 

Made with Debbie Bliss Roma, this wool and alpaca blend will keep your baby warm and comfy. We love the tassels on the corners, and the varied palette of colors would be great for a boy or girl.

 

Hedgerow Sweater by Isobel W

Hedgerow sweater

 

The intricate fair isle pattern on this sweater looks incredibly time consuming, but the final result is totally worth it. Isobel said this was her first time steeking, an intimidating task for sure. Well done!

 

Helen Sweater by Myriam G

Inspired by the earth tones of nature, Myriam knit this Berroco sweater in the Brown Rice color of Berroco Ultra Alpaca with touches of Mahogany Mic, Irwyn Green, and Candied Yam Mix. A simple pattern with an elegant touch. She almost blends into the branches she gazes at.

 

Owl Pillow by Jo L

Owl pillow

 

This wise old owl is done up in Paintbox Yarns, after a pattern by Whitney Webster. He looks like a comfy companion to lay your head on, perhaps while reading an Audobon book on birds, or working on a crossword puzzle?

 

Bamboo Baby Vintage Romper

 

Your baby will be ready for a sock hop in this lovely vintage-inspired romper made by Wendy M. The original design by OGE Knitwear Designs includes an A-line dress and bolero as well, for the truly stylish toddler.

 

Samantha’s Heirloom Dress, Hat, and Socks by Lonormi M

Heirloom dress and hat

 

Perfect for a baby photo shoot, this outfit includes vintage 100% silk ribbons and a wonderful alpaca and silk blend Amano Ayni yarn. If your baby could talk, she’d certainly tell you she feels like royalty in these clothes.

 

Peter Rabbit Sweater by Gail P

Peter Rabbit sweater

 

Knit for her grandson Micah, this cabled sweater uses Heather Cabanas’ pattern and replaces the buttons with every child’s favorite rabbit, Peter! Made from Plymouth Yarn Jeannee Worsted, this cotton and acrylic blend is great for babies’ sensitive skin.

 

My Wedding Shawl by Jenny L

My wedding shawl

 

Jenny made this stunning lace shawl to wear at her wedding, and finished it with just a day to go! Knit with the gorgeous mohair and silk Angel yarn from Debbie Bliss, this will surely be and heirloom piece passed down for generations.

 

Teddy Bear Onesie by Diane D

Teddy bear onesie

 

Although it may not look like it at first glance, this adorable onesie is actually knit! It uses the unique Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky, which makes it looks just like a cuddly teddy bear!
