I had lots of fun knitting for family and friends during the run up to Christmas.
I was browsing as usual for patterns for snoods but couldn’t seem to find one that fitted the beautiful personality of my young sister-in-law.
As she’s someone who has been on stage and singing since being a toddler, I really wanted to make her something about music.
Chunky Yarn in two colours. I used one and a half black yarn balls and half of the white and they were both from Wool Warehouse.
12mm Knitting Needles. Mine are wooden ones from Wool and the Gang.
