Awesome work

Window3One of my readers has completed an amazing feat and knitted all the items from ‘The twelve knits of Christmas’ – that’s a staggering 78 items and, really, only the gold rings are very quick to do. Congratulations and thank you, Patricia. I love the way you’ve done the characters’ eyes and the eight ladies are perfectly posed. The items were featured in her local bookshop window over Christmas.

  1. Crikey! That’s knitting beyond the call of duty!

  2. It is indeed! I knitted them all too – correct numbers of birds but only one of each character. They looked great in my window for all to see!
    Reason I wanted to get in touch is to let you know that you spawned this:

    I’ve mentioned your name and book to all but not always picked up. But huge thanks for such an inspiring beginning – I love my little Royal family – just taking a break from knitting Prince George now…

      Hi Pat
      Love your version of Cameron, particularly great hair!
      Keep up the good work.
      Fiona – just found your email in my spam folder. Something weird happening on my new computer.

  3. I live in the USA, and I have had a problem finding yarn for knitting one of your fabulous zombies in the appropriate size and choice of colors. I knitted the classic zombie, but I wound up with an eleven inch doll because I could not find the appropriate gauge yarn in a good range of colors. Do you have any suggestions for me?

    • Fiona

      The basic gauge I use is UK double knitting (DK) which is the same as ‘light worsted’ in the USA. I knit on smaller needles than usual for this weight of yarn – the European 3mm is a big smaller than US size 3, so you could try US size 2 needles if you find things coming out a big too big on the size 3. Is that helpful? All the best.
