For me, Knitvent is like smelling mangoes in the supermarket. It means that Christmas is on the way. I always see knitvent as a countdown to Christmas. The Christmas mugs are brought from the back of the cupboard, and Christmas movies appear on Netflix.
This year Helen is focusing on patterns that can be used with Advent yarn or scrap yarn. The first pattern is the Anthology Throw. The pattern requires 20g of 24 colours. However, as I will be opening my advent yarn on the 1st of December, I thought about knitting a Christmas version of this throw.
I went through my stash and came up with a candy apple Christmas colour range. All the yarn are Plucky Knitter in the Primo fingering range.
I absolutely love the way Helen writes her patterns. Helen always has a stitches count and a percentage column % in each pattern.
I am currently at 10%. I cannot see myself completing this pattern this year. Not with the other projects I want to work on. I am thoroughly enjoying this project.
Currently watching Season three of Deadwind.
