Do you like knitted warm sweaters? Yes? Me too.
But my problem is that when I knit it myself it doesn’t look nice. I already tried to improve it by using different needles for right and left rows. Nevertheless, I didn’t like the result very much.
For a long time I was looking for someone to knit me sweaters according to my patterns. On the internet I found people who knit sweaters as an order. But I was looking for someone nearby to discuss wool, patterns and so on.
And then I was in a shop that sold homemade things for someone. There were sewn bags and pillows AND knitted stockings.
Of course, I immediately asked if she accepted orders. That’s how I met Hanna. She lives in my city which was important for me.
Today I want to show you the fourth sweater – my favourite so far.
Anyone who has read other postings from me knows that I love applications and nautical motifs.
OK, I didn’t want applications on my sweater. So I thought, why not embroider the sweater?
I found a site on the internet where you can buy embroidery designs. https://www.lesbrodeusesparisiennes.com/en/les-/660-le-grand-abc-rivages-a-broder-au-point-de-croix.html (no, I don’t advertise them or get anything from them)
Actually it should say “LA MER” on the sweater, but Hanne said it would be much too big.
That’s why I chose the embroidery pictures WITHOUT the letters.
Here are the embroideries on the sweater
I love this sweater ❤ ❤ ❤
Since this week Hanna is embroidering an advent calendar for me. So for each day a Christmas motif. Then I want to sew bags out of it. Unfortunately she won’t be able to finish it this year. Too much to embroider and I still have to sew afterwards.
The knitting and embroidery look wonderful, the images look so clean and neat on the white background. I love knitting but gave up after years because I just wasn’t very good; I liked to do cable and also drew patterns on graph paper for patterned jumpers; I had yarn bobs and little bent needles and found it fascinating but the garments were rather shapeless and the ribbing was dreadful – I’d still be knitting if I was as this good.
