I was browsing the hobbies section at the library the other day (do you also borrow craft books instead of buying them?) when I found this book. For a second or two I almost took the challenge of making on e of these beauties. And then I realized I would probably finish it in time to give it as a gift to my one of future my grandchildren.
The sad truth is I am not a knitter. As much as I’d like the idea of making a sweater or one of these beautiful cardigans from Louisa Harding’s book, I don’t see it happening very soon. Yet I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful the garments underneath the cardigans look. The mix of knitted and silky, soft textures and colours. It’s very feminine.
It makes me think I need a pair of velvet pants, a silk shirt and a circle skirt in my wardrobe. Oh, and a couple chunky medium cardigans. Handmade if possible.
What about you? Do you also knit? Do you buy handmade knits?
Have a good week!
