In 2011 I knitted a Kate Davies Kid Owlet jumper for my granddaughter. I posted about it here.
When I was last down in Melbourne I noticed that the jumper was a bit too small for my granddaughter but she likes it so I thought I would knit her another in a larger size. Spotlight had a sale on wool so I bought some Cleckheaton Artisan
at an incredible price so the jumper cost $15 to make. An absolute bargain. I used old buttons that I had cut off a shirt that was no longer serviceable.
I hope she likes this one as much as she did the previous one.
You can find the pattern for Owlet on Ravelry.
I also bought some Artisan in this shade but I am not sure what I will make with it.

Oh that is cute! Love the yarn – I saw a great sweater I want to make on Ravelry. It’s Laurie and the link is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/laurie-7
I like the neckline on that and the orange would be my choice of colour. Not a bright orange but more a browny orange. I love autumnal tones. I have a summer sweater in white cotton, very similar to this.
I love the orange color – I haven’t found any yarn for it yet. I was thinking hemp but then I read how hard it is on your hands and I thought nah – I’ll do wool when I can find what I want. When they do these patterns and use weird yarn dyed by one person who only does it every 6 months or so …… I could pull my hair!
I’m sure Maggie will love it. It’s very cute.
Thanks Emma. I am now doing a bit more on the blanket I am crocheting for Fiona.
That is such a lovely jumper, and a really amazing price. Not for the first time while reading your blog, I wish I could knit.
Perhaps that is something you could take up. It is not difficult to do. You might find that unbeknownst to you you are actually an accomplished knitter! 🙂
I wish! I have tried it but I found getting the tension right really difficult, I’d have loose bits followed by tight bits, and it would turn out very odd. I also only know the most basic knitting stitches and knitting patterns are like double Dutch to me! I agree though, it would be wonderful if I could learn to do it properly.
Oh I L-O-V-E I-T I am certain that your granddaughter will be thrilled to bits… I bet you will get lots of hugs and a bunch of kisses for it… which, I bet will make you smile and tingle all over!
The colours are fantastic, and the style of the jumper is very pretty, what a lovely grandma you are! Best wishes, keep busy, Jay x
Thanks you Jay. I do get lots of cuddles from my granddaughter.
