Chunky Knits and Knaked Knitting!

I recently spotted some really amazing knitwear on I Want You to Know It and just had to find out where it came from. These amazing chunky hats and dresses not only look very cozy and warm but also very stylish in a super size sort of way. Unfortunately for me, nothing in life is this simple and when I contacted Woolfish, creators of these lovely pieces, I was told I could buy the extra chunky yarn to make them myself. Woolfish is a small yarn and textiles shop on the edge of the picturesque village of St Abbs in Scotland. Hmm, I am not much of a knitter, in fact I am not a knitter at all and I strongly suspected that embarking on such a project, would end up in yet another half finished creation.

I have however fallen in love with the very beautiful colours and chunkiness of the dress and hat. When I found out that they were made using knaked knitting (no knitting needles required), I was even more tempted. I am currently considering a slightly simpler project using the very chunky yarn, a snood - something that is quite near the top of my wish list for this winter. Now I just need to decide on a colour.
