Merry Jumper Dress

Thank you for all your blog feedback last week! It’s been really helpful and has confirmed that regular readers enjoy a weekly blog and are happy to see everything (new patterns, events, my finished makes & life stuff) across everywhere ( blog, social media and in my newsletter)!

So I won’t be making any major changes (except possibly dropping Twitter…), but I will continue to keep my monthly newsletter a bit more product and event based. I sometimes do exclusive offers and show giveaways via my newsletter – so make sure you’re subscribed if you don’t want to miss out!

Following on from you wanting to see my finished makes… I finished my first make-nine-2020 garment!

The pattern is Merry from Kim Hargreaves Winter Blooms and I’ve wanted to knit it for ages! The book is now discontinued but there are some copies available for sale or trade on Ravelry.

It’s knitted in Rowan Kid Classic which is one of my favourite yarns – it’s so light and fluffy, but also lovely and warm. This shade is Mulberry and it’s absolutely gorgeous – it’s like a ripe and juicy Victoria plum.

And yes… it’s huge! It’ll be super comfy and cosy for working at home and mooching around in. I made the smallest size, but added a bit of length. Because it’s so wide, the extra length ate up quite a bit of yarn and I needed an extra ball just for the neckline which was very kindly gifted from Ippikin (thanks Molly!).

So my make-nine-2020 has gotten off to a slow start… how’s yours going?

  1. Love this pattern, may have to add it to my to do list (mind you I am going to have to live to about 300 to do everything I want!)

    Love your blog, informative and cheerful, a pleasure to read especially in the current somewhat challenging times!
