Making a Killing

Hi Folks, sorry that I’ve not blogged for a while – I just don’t know where the time goes. I do know that there never seems to be enough time to knit – but still, I’m grateful that I can manage to do some knitting almost every day.

I’m particularly excited about my latest project – I’ve finally managed to get my hands on the wool to knit a jumper like the one worn by Sarah Lund in the Danish detective programme “The Killing”.

The pattern, originally designed by Hjertegarn, has been translated from Danish by Katy at Art Yarn. The yarn is Peruvian wool from Denmark (I know that confused me too initially) so all-in-all it’s a multi-national project.

The jumper is knitted in the round and the pattern suggests you use 80cm circular needles. I must confess that I found these a little long so I am using 60cm now and will save the 80cm for the yoke. That feels like a long way off as, so far, I’ve only completed the rib:

The ribbing is done!

I’m up against a fairly tight deadline as I want this finished in time for the Creative Craft Show at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern from the 1st-3rd March. If you don’t want to wait until then to make your own killing you can also get the kit online at
