They've all got knits!

Knits in abundance!
Everywhere I look I see AMAZING knits I am simply chomping at the bit to have a go at.

An email from Loop had me smiling and drooling over these..

The patterns are available here at Tiny Owl Knits and here at Loop.  Loop is a fantastic shop and used to sell the amazing Swallow coloured milk casein knitting needles that I love from Australia.  They've not had them in a long while which is such a shame.  I keep meaning to get my brother-in-law to send me some over.  There are many many 'salivating on chin' patterns available and gorgeous yarn, really gorgeous yarn.  It's also one of those mail order shops that wrap your purchases with such care that you almost don't want to open them.  Of course you do.  No amount of well wrapped tissue is going to keep from my new yummy yarn for a squeeze.  I love a squeeze of a ball of yarn.  One of the many reasons why I like a good quality yarn; acrylic doesn't lend itself to an enjoyable squeeze!  If you have never had a look at Loop, I urge you to do so.

The latest post from the purl bee is full of more temptation...

These images encompass warm tummy favourites of mine; socks, wrist warmers, blankets, stripes and rib stitch.  I love ribs in knitting, ribs and moss!  As the leaves start to turn I find myself day dreaming about yarn, Brittany crochet hooks and knitting needles.  Does anyone else?
If you have never visited the purl bee, please do.  It's very inspiring , full to the gunnels with crochet, knitting and sewing patterns.
Lastly, this blanket.  Again with the hexes!!  From Tiny Owl Knits:

Are they not gorgeous?  Is the blanket not gorgeous?  I am waiting to see if I am lucky enough to win the pattern from a competition at the mollie makes blog, if not I am so so so buying it here or here.

My heart lies on a hexagon blanket!  

So much temptation...

What knits have you spotted?



  1. Damn I wish I could knit.

    I love, love, love that blanket.

  2. Oh YES! I too have had my thoughts turning to knitty things and went with a friend on a special outing yesterday to a glorious shop called the Interknit Cafe in Farnham to purchase wool. I nearly bought some to make something for myself but couldn't find the exact right pattern/yarn combo, so bought more to knit for family babes. I love all the things you have shared here and will be following the links - ta!

  3. C'mon Colette, you are uber talented and could knit no bother.
    Alix, I'm having to constrain myself, really, I just want to have lots of new yarn! x

  4. My mum knits beautifully, I however knit beautiful holes! am loving the deer hat with antlers. Sue x

  5. Wow, that blanket is just gorgeous! It looks so warm and squishy.


I love to hear from all you interesting folks out there so don't be shy.
Had to put the annoying word verification back on as the spam was getting silly. Forgive me! Ali
