UK Swap Question of the Week 4

What is your favourite thing that you have knit? (It might not be your favourite thing to wear but it was the most enjoyable to knit).

I enjoyed knitting the Monkey socks that I made for my sister in law's birthday recently. In fact, most socks are enjoyable to knit so my current one is always a favourite. I also loved knitting a little cardie for my daughter and she liked it too which was a bonus. I think my overall favourite is the Tomten Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I love the whole pithy directions approach she has and felt quite free and creative while I was making it

What is the worst thing you've ever knit?

A cable jumper for my husband. He is tall and has long arms but unfortunately I got the sizing hideously wrong and it would most likely fit a super size sumo wrestler... it is a legendary jumper within the family.... have only knitted him socks since! You can view the full horror here: Monster jumper

What are your favourite knitblogs?

I check out friends blogs mostly and have had a good old nosey around the UK Swappers blogs too! I do like Brooklyn Tweed and the Yarn Harlot too.

What is the most amazing knitted thing you have seen?

Spotted this article

What is your favourite knitted item to wear? Post a picture if you can.

The first pair of socks I ever knitted. Still going strong. Still comfy (pic to follow)

Wow... that jumper would be a lovely coat! But it must be fun revelling in the legendary status.
