Birthday Knitting

dear diary,

The other week I was having the usual yearly headache when trying to think what to give the man in my life for his birthday. Every year I ask him: ” Any wishes darling?” and the answer is always the same…but then I had an idea!!

As he had lost his favourite knitted hat in a gale on top of a mountain in Snowdonia earlier in the year and he had long wanted a pair of fingerless mittens for walking the dog and surprise surprise I had a little yarn just waiting to be used for all these things…

…I made

Textured Hat – Rowan Wool Cotton

and matching…

Textured Fingerless Mittens – Rowan Wool Cotton

and then I thought why not make a lightweight cowl to wear with his smart coat in London, so I made this too…

Textured Cowl – Marianne Isager Alpaca 2 in three colours

All these went down a treat I am happy to say and had their first outing yesterday. I am hoping to get the patterns written up sometime soon, so anyone interested… keep your eyes peeled here.

Happy knitting this week 🙂
