My Mum’s Latest Knitting…

Like most knitters – my Mum taught me the basics of how to knit. I grew up watching her fingers flying so fast they blurred, producing beautiful knitted garments. Usually even faster at a “good bit” on the TV 😉

Mum knits small items mainly for a particular local charity and occasionally for very close family and herself. She hates the idea of oddments of yarn laying around and has become a demon for getting out the kitchen scales and working out the precise stripe pattern needed to use up colours in jumpers, mittens and booties. She says it keeps her brain active working it out!!

It was Mother’s day, here in the UK, last Sunday 18th March. Mum spent the day with me – talking knitting, eating a huge lunch, decadent dessert and watching the film “Memoires of a Geisha”. This is a two boxes of tissues movie if ever there was one – recommended!! 🙂

Mum bought her latest completed garments with her to show me so I thought I’d show you her work!A garter stitch baby jumper in cream…

..of course with matching hat and booties!

…and in lilac…

A toddler’s tank top…

The same pattern with stash busting stripes and matching mitts..

Hope you liked them!

    what wonderful tension and charming outfits. It’s good to find ways to use up bits of yarn, instead of just hoarding them

    Your mum is a super knitter, what incredibly neat work. Now we know where you get it from!
