Wool for my cardi

Hey guys,

So as you know I’m in the midst of knitting my first ever garment a gorgeous chunky cardigan... the must have thing for this sweater weather and already all over the high street.

I’m a jeans and tee kinda gal so a chunky knit works perfect with my wardrobe. I had to decide on a yarn for my cardigan and again I don’t know much about yarn as I am pretty new to knitting.

Anyways the pattern called for a chunky yarn so I went onto loveknitting HERE (#AF 15% off first order). and you can filter their yarns by weight but also they do yarn bundles which are perfect for a bigger project like this.

I posted on Instagram asking some of my lovely followers if they used or knew anything about paintbox yarns and I heard some great things and went for it. Their wool mix super chunky is 50% wool and 50% acrylic, looks and feels gorgeous in real life and hopefully washes/wears well.

My goodness though they have a big selection of colours which is amazing!! But I wanted so many... in the end I went with this pistachio green as I don’t have any knitwear in that kind of colour AND I love it!

I’m currently working my way through the pattern and have the back and one front piece done, are you working on any fun projects? Would you like to learn how to knit? I am thinking of bringing out a beginners knitting pattern!

More updates soon,
