your knits!

Cuddly pup This cute dog jumper was in the July 2017 issue. I made it for my granddaughter using yellow and grey yarn from Aldi, with Patons Fairytale Cloud DK for the motif. Now I’m going to make her one in pink and white using Stylecraft Sparkle DK (and the same Fairytale Cloud). Julie Roberts, via Facebook Lucy says How bright and colourful – your granddaughter will look a treat in it! I love the idea of a sparkly version, too.

I made this unicorn jumper from the February 2019 issue, but changed it slightly. The grey yarn was Stylecraft Special DK in Silver, and the other colours were Paintbox DK. I’ve been knitting since I was about eight years old and I have an online Etsy shop (sweetygreetings), and I mostly knit for that. I recently learned to crochet, which I EQ››RHMRK› a challenge. When knitting jumpers, booties etc, I like to knit both pieces at once, and you can’t do that with crochet! Debs Sherry-Brennan, via Facebook Lucy says Your unicorn certainly has a look all his own, Debs. We love him!…
