Knits for my Mum
I love knitting for my mum. I don’t know if anyone quite appreciates the effort of a hand made item like she does, and I love that I get to see it on her all the time. I have knit her a few things over the years so I asked her to bring her knit wardrobe out for a photo shoot. Well, she showed up with EVERYTHING I had ever knit her and it make quite a nice stack! Without further ado, here is some of my mum’s knit wardrobe:
I knit this vest 7 or 8 years ago, from a men’s pattern in SweetGeorgia Superwash DK in ‘black plum’ and mum loves it. She wears it to work just like this, over a button down shirt. It’s a lovely wardrobe staple. She has recently requested one with a deeper V for a more feminine look. The wheels are turning!
I think the Low Tide is the most recent thing I’ve knit for mum. I gave it to her last mothers day. I knit it up in Sweet Fiber Super Sweet Sock in Evergrey, one of my favorite colors. Is it grey? Is it blue? Is it green? Yes.
I knit this scarf ages ago, when I worked at Urban Yarns. The yarn is Handmaiden, the pattern is Moonlight Sonata, and the fringe is ‘knit it’ and then unraveled at the end. Mum loves fringe so she wears this one all the time.
There will be many more knits to come, starting with this mother’s day…if I finish that last sleeve tonight….and sew on the buttons…and block….I have work to do!
