It's been really hard to pick our favourite projects this week as there are so many beautiful projects in Vivacous 4ply to choose from on Ravelry.
So, after a lot of deliberation, here are just some of our favourites (as usual just click the pictures to see more details on each project)......
Vivacious is perfect for garments that you'll want to wear again and again as it's both hardwearing (thanks to it's high twist) and machine washable (thanks to the superwash merino wool), so that's where we'll start!
I love this style, it looks so comfy and easy to wear but pretty as well, the kind of cardi you'd wear all the time!
Fancy making an heirloom project? What about something like this stunning blanket, Leaves of Grass by amusementcell?
Knitted in Peacock, this blanket is knitted using the Elizabeth Zimmermann Pi shawl method (where every time you double the number of rows you've knitted, you double the number of stitches). So while it may look complex, for the majority of the blanket you actually only have a lace pattern to concentrate on, rather than difficult shaping.
If you prefer smaller projects, fear not! We found some gorgeous accessories too. First we have a couple of pairs of socks!
We love the travelling stitches on littlemissyknit's Socks, they look great in Copper Tones:
And we love the combination of variegated yarn and a simple knit and purl pattern on iamfiona's Dumbledore's Christmas Tweed socks, knitted in Tweed Imps:
If you fancy something bright and pretty to keep your neck cosy you could try a project like one of these next two:
We love knittybaker's p r e c i o u s cowl, knitted in Mixed Magentas, a really lovely accessory that you can wear long like this, or wrapped twice round your neck for extra warmth.
Last but not least, a pop of bright colour in a simple relaxing project:
We love laceloveslinda's Rae a Drop of Golden Sunshine scarf, knitted in Sunshine, it's such a happy project (love the sunflowers in the background too!
Thank you to all these lovely knitters for letting us use their gorgeous project photos! We hope this has given you some inspiration :)
