I am going to mention it again, I am sorry but it’s Chrisssssssssstmas *Slade plays quietly in the background*. When you were all applying your sun cream I spent the scorching hot days in August (remember those?) knitting Christmas decorations. Yesterday I was in a meeting planning as far as October 2014! Anyway I digress……..
This months issue of Simply Knitting Magazine is on the shelves on Friday and I can give you a preview of my latest creations, inspired by the colour palette of my childhood. Growing up in the seventies wearing those shades as a red-head was painful, I am not sure if I was picked on for being ‘Ginger’ or because the colours my mother dressed me in made me look like a ghost! Before any of you gasp at my use of the word ‘ginger’, Tim Minchin sums it up in his song, ‘Only a ginger can call another ginger, Ginger!’ (click if you are not easily offended).
I digress again….. this set of Christmas decorations are knitted in Rowan’s gorgeous Wool Cotton, the retro colours provided exactly the shades I was looking for.
