Famous Knits: Kate Middelton

Written by Sarah. Posted in famous knits, knits, want, yarn

I’m not really one for celebrity gossip. I love some Jennifer Lawrence but I don’t buy into the tabloids. I don’t really care about who’s dating who. When it comes to the Royals, I’m generally not interested. But when my amazingly talented friend Kelly posted this article about Kate Middleton’s new hobby, I was giddy! The Duchess of Cambridge has taken up knitting while waiting for the next Royal to arrive. Obviously she and I are automatic best friends now. I wonder what adorable little things she is making for the baby. Now, lots of celebrities knit but I thought that it was really sweet that Kate said she could use some tips for improvement. I wish I could go give her a lesson over tea and biscuits!

In honor of Kate’s new hobby, I put together a few yarns that were born in the UK.

Blue – Rowan Softknit Cotton in Indigo
White – Debbie Bliss Angel in White
Red – Sirdar Snuggly DK in Flamenco

And how could this collection be complete without the Knit Your Own Royal Wedding book by Fiona Goble?!

I wonder if we can send Kate some knitting advice. My favorite thing to tell beginners is this: There are only two stitches. Once you know them both you can make ANYTHING so there’s no reason to be intimidated!

What’s your advice for new knitters? Are you listening, Kate? We’re here to help!

ps. Check out Francesca’s test knit of my Olivia pattern. I love the color she chose!
