my knitwear collection


I have quite a large collection of knitwear (your so surprised..) some of which I’ve never mentioned on here before, and some of it certainly doesn’t warrant an entire post BUT I thought people might like to see and its also handy for me.. to keep an eye on what I already have.. before I go wandering over to ebay.. again.I have added most of my stranded knitwear but I still have all my Lace garments to add, If it proves popular I may add all my accessories too.. who knows. So if your interested in what kind of knitwear I have please hop on over here.

  1. Ella – it’s fabulous, and such a great resource, too. I’m looking forward to seeing the lace collection, I’m currently in love with J&S lace weight in colours but haven’t progressed beyond scarves and ties yet!

  2. What a superb collection, you must be so proud of it. I like it especially that some are your knit and some are given, and that you still wear them! Love it, please do continue with the photos. I have a vintage cardie with, I think, a Fair Isle yoke, inside it says “Knitwear from the Skerries”, a treasure, they are all treasures! Thank you.

  3. Such a lovely idea, and very inspiring. I was unable to resist some beautiful skeins of Scottish wool (not Shetland, sadly) on ebay the other day, in a shade exactly like silver-green lichen – it needs to be another mostly-plain sweater of some kind, but I can’t decide on whether to work a yoke at the neck or to attempt a recreation of the stunning vintage garment from the J&S archive which you posted a photo of the other day (with the stranded band of motifs closer to the waist, and a v-neck)…. Looking forward to seeing the lace collection again too.

  4. What an amazing collection, and such great idea to catalogue them like this. I remember your blog posts about several of them, including how unbelievable it was that you found a Cowichan sweater in the charity shop in Lerwick and I have yet to discover one here in a charity shop in Canada (and I live very near where the originals were knit!). Not that I’m at all jealous or anything. :-)

  5. Ohhh those two tank tops are just gorgeous, think I’ve lost my heart to them.
    With the wonderful knits on both yours and Kate Davies blogs, to inspire me, I am desperately trying to improve my knitting so I can attempt something as smashing as these (dreaming of being able to one day knit a Fair Isle tank top).

  6. Ella, these are all just wonderful!! Do you wear most of them? You must have an extremely large closet to store them in!!

    1. I try to Elaine, I need to start selling the ones I never wear. Nope, I have very little storage so it’s always a battle to find somewhere for them!
