Knit Knotes

Show off those FOs

Over the years, I’ve met many knitters at my favourite local yarn shops, SnBs, workshops and fibre/knitting events. Amusing enough (because this is Ireland), I’ve bumped into several friendly faces while walking down a street in Cork, Dublin or Waterford. I’ve always noticed the handknits – a hat, shawl, cardigan or a pair of mittens. 

Knitters are proudly make a fashion statement, creating something that is bespoke, haute couture and original (thanks to the talents of indie dyers). I’ve admired many hand knitwear (thanks to the amazing and talented designers) which should be showcased on a catwalk during Fashion Week.

I was so inspired by prettyfunkyknitter’s sweater, that I had to knit one for myself!

Pattern: Flax by TinCanKnits
