Baby Knits

We’ve been busy here at the Made By Ewe Shop in Broadwindsor, knitting baby jumpers to showcase some of our yarn.

This little jacket is made from lovely British wool, Diggle DK, It is a lovely tweedy yarn, 97% wool, and the jacket is just right for a country outing.

For Mums who prefer a machine washable knit, we have these 3 sample tops, knitted in Rico Baby Classic, an easy care acrylic blend yarn, which can be washed at 40 degrees.

A pretty bolero for a party dress…

We have also knitted this deliciously soft little jacket with some of our new yarn from King Cole.  I love the teddy buttons!

Finally this useful little gilet has been knitted in one of our popular Wendy yarns, Festival Chunky.  The colours are lovely and it has a very nice feel to it too.

About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
