Child's sweater I made for my first son, who is now 33. You do the math.
Yeah, it's another thing I do. I will admit I haven't done much in the past couple years, but it's on the list to revisit in earnest during retirement. Which happens to start in 2 weeks!
I learned to knit from these fine ladies.
My maternal grandmother (Rt) & her sister (Lt).
My grandfather was a tailor. I think I come by the fiber obsession rightfully.
An ambitious project. I love this design. The penguins are so whimsical. I enjoyed the focus it took to follow the pattern.
Ravelry is a wonderful site to peruse for patterns & inspiration. Image above from their site.
Patterns, yarns, discussions, designers, it's all there.The image above is from them. Free to sign up.
Of course I have a large Pinterest board devoted to knitting patterns I drool over.
Knitting is relaxing, meditative & tactile. So transportable hence a great endeavor for travel. Then there is the gifting potential. All great stuff in a world where using our hands to create something can be a lost pass time, but is so important to being human. Would you agree?
