Quietly working away

I have been I promise and you can tell that I knitted these jumpers a while ago because they've already started pilling! That's the problem with cashmere, but I'm prepared to put up with it for the softness and warmth.

This is Kim Hargreaves Ripple from Nectar knitted in Naturally ME a 80% wool and 20% cashmere yarn that's machine washable! Some of the yarn was recycled from my Glint (from the same book) which was gorgeous (I wore it on my wedding day!), but which was never really going to be practical for me. As you can see it's already well worn! I'm wearing it with a shirt I made from a remnant from Astratex sort of following a Sew U pattern by Wendy Mullins and my organic denim jeans made from Tessuti, pattern Vogue 8131.

Also made from a 80% wool and 20% cashmere Karabella Margrite, this is my Kim Hargreaves Still, from Thrown Together. Some of this yarn was recycled from my Louisa Harding Fitted Sweater which was too short. I'm wearing my organic denim skirt (yes, I had enough left over!) made from McCalls 5590 a fabulous easy pattern which fits perfectly. My two favourite outfits!

I'm taking a break to do lots of sewing and to finish my other knitting projects!

  1. Hi - love the top! I was just wondering where you bought these books from? I desperately want her Nectar and Breeze books but I don't want to have to order them from the UK.
