Amy by Jem

I mentioned this project earlier in the year – and I’ve certainly taken my time over it… But the wait is over and you can now knit your very own Amy by Jem cushions!

I’m a huge fan of my friend Amy Blackwell’s illustrations and have loved working on this collaboration! I love Amy’s use of colour and the Rowan Summerlite DK palette was the perfect choice.

The cushions all work beautifully together so they’re also available to buy as a collection. This works out as better value if you want to knit them all!

For anyone who missed my social media update this week – my online shop is temporarily closed. For more details please read this post. Thank you for understanding x
All I want to do at the moment is tackle WIPs! I can’t seem to focus on anything big or new. So this week I finished a couple of cushions that I’ve been planning/working on for a while.

Many moons ago I knitted Anastasiya from Rowan Magazine 48. When I saw it in the mag I loved everything about it. Unfortunately¬† the finished tunic was super unflattering and I just didn’t wear it. But I still loved it and wanted to get it out of the wardrobe… so I decided to make it into a cushion!

I planned to do this a few years back, but I think I procrastinated because I was nervous that I would regret cutting it up. But after a few more years without wearing it was definitely for the chop Рand I love it as a cushion! 

I’ve also finished my mustard Alpaca Classic cushion. I cast this on just before the shoot for Cosy Alpaca Knits so that I had something simple to work on after all the pattern writing and knitting for the book! It also came it handy as a shoot prop.

I knitted it from corner to corner in the same way as the squares for the Moody Blanket and adorned it with poms made from oddments.

I’m planning to redecorate our living room this year so I’m going to save these cushions until it’s all new and lovely! I’ve also got a crochet cushion and a hexi patchwork cushion on the go… it’s gonna be so cosy!

So how’s your lockdown-making going? Have you got finishitus too?!
