and receiving 6 free yarn bobbins in this months Simply Knitting magazine
and “Oh, the girls get loads of knitted clothes, I really need to knit something for Ollie and Dyl”
And so, with Jasmine as my guide, Dr Who DVD’s as our fuel, we sat looking through tons (and I mean TONS!) of knitting magazines to find all patterns for boys, and there it was, like a shining light. “The Boy’s Slipover” in “Woman’s Weekly, Knitting and Crochet”
And I expect you’ve guessed it’s a Fairisle .
