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!
