Knit Relief 2012

Teen Granny  has invited me to be part of the most awesome initiative – knitting on behalf of Sports Relief. Knit Relief! Why run round a soggy field, when you can knit from your sofa and still contribute?

You can read all about the knitted items on offer here. A knitted, personalised figure from Teen Granny herself? The person who turned Prince William into wool? Yes, please. Or what about a hand knitted raincloud from Emma Pooley (@goldenblades):

I’ve agreed to make the Anthro-Inspired Scarflet, a popular free pattern on Ravelry. It’s an almost-perfect interpretation of a neck scarf that cost A LOT in a certain chain of US stores. (One now open on Regent Street, but still way beyond my pay packet.) Here’s one I made a couple of years ago:

This time, I’m making a much more colourful version! I’m making it in one of my favourite wools, Malabrigo Worsted, which is a sooooo soft Merino wool. Below are the multi-coloured hanks I’ve chosen to work with, beside a purple version of the scarflet:

Yay! Is that not the most gorgeous wool? A Didyoumakethat version of this scarf will be available to bid on from March 15, along with loads of other woollie goodies at our very own Ebay stall. I can see at least two things I’d like to win.  Check them out. Thanks, Teen Granny, for this woolly inspiration!

    I’m currently working with Malabrigo for the first time. My LYS has just starting stocking some, and the lovely owner has asked me to knit a shop sample in Malabrigo sock! Eee! And as a thank you she let me choose a hank for my very own :) It’s is wonderfully soft, and I look forward to seeing the scarflet. I love that pattern!

    I hope you get heaps of bids – your scarflet looks like it will be gorgeous

  3. The cloud with rain drops looks very cool :)
