there’s a brilliant competition here, to do with wearing as many hand-knitted items as possible to keep warm in this chilly weather. so i thought i’d have a go! here’s the evidence of me (and a little help from samuel) in as many items as i could reasonably wear (ie: only one of each type of item).
i was obviously let down by my lack of knitted jumper/cardigan or hat – issues i must recitify! but the hats i have made so far have gone to other people, and the sweater on the needles is only collar sized, so couldn’t really count! however, the list of worn items is as follows (the link are ravelry links, as requested by the competition originator, so unless you have a rav account, you won’t be able to use them). i expect many a knitter will surpass this quantity quite easily, but it was fun being so cosy for a while 🙂
cowl (pretty thing)
scarf (my own design)
wristwarmers (own design – no project page – made before i joined ravelry from yarn left over from this)
mittens (snowflake catchers)
socks (cloud nine)
samuel’s hat and mitts (striped hat by debbie bliss, mittens: my own design)
(we had a photo-losing issue with the full length pic, so just to prove the socks were really there…
so if you’re cold this week, go and find all the wooly items you own, and wear them. it’s very snuggly!
