So I’ve been knitting! I use Ravelry to find free patterns because I’m a cheapskate!!!
That hat was knitted from the brim up, whereas this beauty for my Sweet Girl was knitted from the top down…
And then the finished article on my little Miss:
Two hats down, Little man was feeling left out!! Once again thanks to my sister’s wonderful present, I was able to send for some special yarn. Little Man’s favourite colours are red and orange, so I fell hook, line and sinker for this beautiful Alpaca yarn….
Now, I’m working on a matching scarf for him. But what a delight it is each morning to see him pop that little hat on his head with a great beaming smile, and what joy to see him come out of school still wearing it!
Next is a project for me – using some Noro yarn for the first time. It’s been a little ambition of mine since I became a more avid knitter, ad more discerning yarn lover… And the time is nearly there!
This is my second post entitled “Sticks and String”… I simply didn’t want a different title.
Given the chaos of real life, those sticks and strings afford me a great deal of peace… there’s a lot to be said for a little time, a little creativity and simple items joined with repetitive movements.
Knit well, all you who do.
And those of you who do not… why not try it?
