January 31 2012 – thisisknit
A few posts ago, we talked about Valentine's Day knitting for men. But many of you are looking for romantic knitting or gifts for women too. So we thought we'd showcase a few ideas today. First of all, this romantic piece is the Poetry cape from Louisa Harding's Three Graces pattern book, made from luscious Grace Wool and Silk. A lovely thing to receive, whether as the raw materials or a finished article. If you're looking for something pretty and practical, then the Whither mitt kit would be an excellent choice - a quick knit in Mirasol Tuhu, the softest blend of llama, merino and angora. And since knitters and crocheters can never have too many project bags, this Pretty Cheep bag will be welcome (while this one has a theme-perfect bluebird, other birds are available): It's been colder the last few days (which gives us a chance to wear cosy yarny things), but we've got very warm hearts. The print in the first image above is another lovely exclusive from Article, where you will also find dainty little cupcake cases with hearts on. No, we couldn't resist them.
