Spring knits in the Community!
What are you knitting for spring? We’ve had a stroll through our gorgeous Community to find some gorgeous inspiration for you!
Bluebell Parade by SEA knitting
There are some glorious springtime projects in the Community, and I’m so inspired to knit so many of them! I find new people to follow every time I skip through all the new uploads! The beautiful Bluebell Parade shawl pictured above is designer SEAknitting’s Easter project, completed in just four days. You can follow her here, for some gorgeous shawls, garments and childrenswear!
Gina R’s Scottie Dog cardigan is just perfect for spring – a cardigan you can pop over little tops, t-shirts and dresses to add an extra layer of warmth when the sun is out but the breeze is cool! She’s knitted it with such skill – those little intarsia dogs are perfect! Follow Gina here!
There have been some gorgeous bunny egg cosies in the Community – I particularly loved Marissa M’s jolly bunnies – perfect for boiled eggs all year round (although it might be fun to knit some Christmas jumper versions for later in the year!) Follow Marissa here!
One of the loveliest things about looking through the projects in the Community, is reading the stories that go with them. Jan H knitted a cardigan for a new baby – and knitted this fabulous bunny bag for the baby’s older sister – the kindness and thoughtfulness of knitters is very touching. Well done Jan – I bet that little girl was thrilled! Follow Jan here!
Sally-Ann B’s mum loves to paint – so Henri the Artist is the perfect gift! Henri is a gorgeous pattern by Amanda Berry, a prolific and talented toy designer! Sally-Ann mentions that this was her first attempt with Kitchener stitch – something that is a tricky to master with confidence, but this is a great way to do it – learning something new with little projects! Looks like Sally-Ann’s knitting skills are pretty good to me! Follow Sally-Ann here!
If you take a look at Lorraine H’s profile, you will spot that she’s knitting two of everything! Twins are on the way! This little baby hat is a gorgeous pattern that knits up fast – the suggested yarn is Paintbox Cotton DK, but any cotton blend will do – and in this case, Lorraine has chosen a baby bamboo yarn, beautifully soft and also great for sensitive baby skin. Follow Lorraine here!
Show us your projects in the Community, and we might feature you in our next roundup of favourites!
