I cannot let 2017 slip away without shouting out about the Remakery. This is an ongoing casual-KAL where we remake items from our knitting past that we always wanted to try again. Perhaps we knit the original for a friend and wanted one for ourselves. Maybe it was a knit that got away and you want to recreate it. Maybe you wanted to remake it bigger, or with mods. Whatever the reason there is a chatter thread in the KnitBritish Ravelry group.
Over 75 remakes happened in the group since the spring and split roughly between garments and accessories. I remade two items: the Antarktis shawl, which I knit in New Leaf Alpaca and Shetland yarn. I also remade Marin, by Ysolda, in the amazing Ramble from Kettle Yarn Co.
I’ve also realised that my recently cast off OWLS sweater is also a remake! Hurrah! I should really give them eyes though!
You can view all of the remakery makes over at Raverly and this is ongoing, so do feel free to keep remaking. My Ishbel in Blacker Brushwork is still on the needles and I foresee another Lush in my future. What will you remake in 2018?
Thanks to all the remakers. You are all magic! Thanks for sharing your remakes on social media too. Check out #KnitBritishremakery (and also #remakery though there are non kb content in there too!)
