Mara Knits Episode 6 – Knitting over the Holidays

Mara Knits Episode 6 – Knitting over the Holidays

I’m starting the New Year having completed all my knitting projects on time for Christmas 2017 and if I’m honest I’m feeling a bit smug about it. I know smugness and smugface aren’t attractive but it’s the first time ever that I’m managed all my Christmas knitting in time for wrapping and delivery so just this once I’m going to allow myself to feel a bit pleased with it all.

The first vlog for 2018 is now up on the YouTube Channel and I thought it was about time that I started doing ‘show notes’ for the vlogs. Essentially writing down the yarns and patterns for the projects I show on the video. So here we go…

Socks
Pattern is my own vanilla sock pattern
Yarns are Head over Heels by Stylecraft, sock weight in the Etna colourway shade 3104. Also West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley DK weight in the Blue Lagoon colourway.

Shawl
Moon River by Malabrigo which is a free pattern on Ravelry here.  The yarn used was Stylecraft Batik Swirl in the Purple Mist Colourway shade 3730

Hat
My own ‘plain’ striped hat based on the stitch counts etc of the Baable Hat. Yarn Womens Institue Premium from Hobbycraft in DK weight.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas, Yule or whatever you celebrate and wish you all the best for 2018.
