So, it should be of no surprise to those who know me well that when my mother-in-law told me this past summer that I will never be a knitter, I set out to prove her wrong. Well, let's just say that the drive to do so has set me on a mission. I'm not there yet. There are far too many other things to do here in Munich than to sit and knit. But, I have taught myself, thank you. And I can report that I'm doing very well. Granted, I haven't tackled anything too
This is a hat that I knitted for myself and I LOVE it! I am so happy with it and how it fits me. It keeps my ears warm in the cool weather and yet it is great to cover unruly hair. I love to wear it on my walks.
This lovely piece is a scarf I knitted from yarn and circular needles that a new friend in Los Cabos gave me. I absolutely love it and it gave me experience using many different types of fancy yarns. It is so lovely and I have had so many compliments wearing it, that I'm ordering two more skeins of this yarn so I can give knit some more prezzies from it.
I also knitted the hat below for her. It is a bit more casual and she can wear it with a play outfit. It turned out a lot better than I thought!
