Neve definitely has a second child’s knit wardrobe. Lots of hand-me-downs but very little all her own. To fix this I knit her up a lovely red Antler sweater and a sparkly Barley hat to complete the outfit.
There is a lot of talk in the knitting world about being a process knitter vs. a product knitter. Do you knit because you love to knit or do you knit because you love the knitted item you have created? I see no reason to choose between the two, I love the finished knit because I loved knitting it!
I had some grand plans for my 2016 Christmas sweaters (as I only have one level of plan: grand!) but in the end, Hunter still fit her Britannia sweater from last Christmas and Jones wore the Tenderheart sweater from Heart on my Sleeve. Wee Bodhi got a new sweater though, an Antler.
While I am thoroughly enjoying the year of something new, I am taking a break and indulging in some bread and butter knitting. That means a simple, satisfying, Antler.
This month we’re talking in depth about GAUGE, which is the size of your knitted stitches. This post focuses on row vs round.
Making 2015 the ‘Year of the Sweater’ here at Tin Can Knits was amazing. We heard from so many knitters who completed their very first garment, gifted sweaters to loved ones, and those dedicated knitters who completed 12 sweaters (or more) in just 12 months!
