Having bred llamas for their fleece and personality for about 10 years, I have all this beautiful soft fleece that I spin and then knit.

I have knitted many jumpers over the years and even did this when I was young and had young children.

They always had really nice hand knitted things.

Nowadays it is probably far cheaper to buy -but I have half a room of wool ready to be knitted and seem to have stopped!

I have knitted some lovely items for various friends and family members.I learned as a child,though I only ever made scarves and socks back then! In my teens I learned how to spin natural coloured fleece,so I then started to knit far more intricate things from my beautiful soft yarns. When I was pregnant I was in hospital for most of the time.I decided to teach myself to knit LACE!!! I made the most gorgeous shawl for the baby with this new skill,and I still have this item today.
Clever! Sounds beautiful.

I bet the shawl and the jumper were as soft as silk. *sigh* I hope your step mum treasured it.
by Rice
Actually,It was a real treat to see her wear it ,and yes! It was lovely and soft from memory!! The shawl is something I am extremely proud of,even after 30 years!

I can't knit very much, and I would not even try.
It's for people with the talent.
I know when I'm in over my head.
Have always thought how smart they are,
to be able to make Jumpers and he like.
If I knitted a jumper for someone it would be to insult them. I'm the world's worst knitter! Although I knit very neatly with even stitches, I add one stitch per row and no one can work out how. Suffice it to say that making a scarf is hilarious enough without me ever trying a jumper. My mum was good at knitting, my sister is good at knitting, I have friends who do amazing work knitting ..... it skipped me.
Yes! *High Five* My mother, my sister . . . great knitters. Me? Pffffft.

Never knitted a jumper but I like to knit other bit and bobs.
I have never knitted a jumper.

Yes for my son when he was little, and knitted a baby matinee jacket (do they still use such things - showing my age!) and booties.

I used to love to knit and do other crafty things as a kid. But I stopped when we moved to Cairns - not much call for knitted scarves and jumpers up here! My mum knitted a few jumpers when we lived down in Victoria - they were great!
Nope. Beanies only
No, nor anything else! Got much better things to do with my time, like read!
Yes, for my then boyfriend. One arm was longer than the other.......hahahah
Many years ago when my son was a baby I knitted jumpers for him. Nowadays the only knitting I do is with a group who knit blankets for the homeless. I am not the best of knitters but even I can knit 6' x 9" blanket strips, four of which are crocheted together (by others) to make full size blankets.
My mother was a great knitter and she taught me heaps of unusual stitches . . feather, moss, basket, spider, to name a few. Can I read a pattern? Hell no! Therefore I CAN knit but I can't MAKE anything. Well, I suppose I could make scarves, I am able to cast on and off. Haha.
by Rice
Aaaah! you do make me smile!!! When I taught myself how to knit the lace shawl,I must admit,I felt pretty darned clever!! It was SO much easier than I had ever dreamed it could be,so it was what really inspired me to knit a jumper for my step-mum which also had lacy stitches in it!
by Jules
While at boarding school, I knitted 2 jumpers for myself. 1 was black & another was pale green. 6 months after I left school, i wore the green 1, the 2nd time i saw my now husband, then later, before we married, i knitted him a funny coloured brown one, & a maroon 1. He still has them both, but hasn't worn them since about that time!
I don't even know if you can still buy 'real' wool.
I've seen 'wool' on sale in craft shops, but when I've investigated the 'wool' I find is actually acrylic!!
