Trendy Tueday - knitwear love!

I'm not sure what it is exactly,  but I really love children in knitwear.  I love it even more if it's been handmade especially for them, by a family member, or friend.

My Mum has recently got back into knitting.  I'm not sure why.  It could be because it's something she can do when sitting down.  Mum was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago this year and had to give up work before she'd have wanted to.  She's always kept herself busy since having to retire, but in the last couple of years, her health has been more effected than before.  She struggles with being very tired so has had to take things a little more slowly.  I think that's where the knitting comes in - that's her relaxing!!  Anyway, the upshot is that I have a new jumper, Felix has a new v-neck and Ethan has one currently being made.  I am so happy!!

Felix has been rocking his new cosy number this week.  Mum chose the wool with my love of bright colours in mind, as I'm sure you can tell!

What do you think? Do you love knitwear as well?  Do you knit?  I'm trying to learn to crochet, but I don't find it comes easily..

I want to share a photo of Felix today - check out his crazy bead hair!  Also, he's wearing some H&M leggings I've been wanting him to grow in to for ages.  Love them!

  1. It's funny I don't tend to put the kids in much knitwear, although Deacon has knitted booties on this weeks post, I think because I can't really wear due to my eczema, this is very cute though x

  2. I love knits for Elsa! Her Granny knits her cardigans and I learnt to knit when I was about 12 but I haven't tried again recently. I would love to learn to crochet, I keep looking for courses but I just don't have the time at the moment. This has inspired me to have another look!

  4. I absolutely love hand knitted things! When we had our baby my MIL finished off an arran cardigan she started for my husband 25 years ago! Can't wait till it fits! We also find lots of knits in charity shops, it sort of makes me sad that people get rid of these lovingly knitted bits, but then I gain from it!

    1. I find bits in charity shops as well. Like you, it makes me feel sad. I discovered recently that some of the older ladies who volunteer knit things up with wool that's donated, so it could be something that has been knitted from spare donated wool!! x

  8. Have you seen these Alex? I saw you commented on the "What Elsa wears fox dress" and they have a dungaree style version! It's on my "To buy when I have a huge stash of money" list (it's a long list!!) http://cdn0.notonthehighstreet.com/system/product_images/images/001/005/987/original_boys-fox-dungaree.jpg?1357572875 xx
