Transformation into Wearable Art


It all begins with a skein of yarn, a pattern and knitting needles.

The results: a wearable cowl neck scarf.

A warm neck apparel for those nippy cold days. 

Let’s make sure our head is cozy warm too.

Recently, I’ve begun to relearn a skill I had from the late 1960’s.

I started making knitted items for my first born daughter back then.

Times were lean. Making items she could wear in the cold weather helped our budget a lot.

Now, I’ve begun to knit for the relaxation and calming effects it has.

The bonus is that I get to gift them to those who can benefit from their use.

These items were sent to my third born daughter who lives in

Albany, New York where it is 35 degrees right now.

Hope you enjoyed my creations.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  2. What’s a wonderful gift to give your daughter, it looks so warm and cosy. It’s still cold in the UK, after a bitter but short~lived snowstorm last week, so I appreciate how useful it must be to her! I used to knit and crochet garments for my children and you’re right ~ it definitely helped to stretch a tight budget, whilst providing me with relaxation and satisfaction. I’m glad you’re receiving the right kind of support in your new craft group, it makes all the difference to your enjoyment and confidence in the items you create. I tend to work without a pattern, making it up as I go along ~ some love it, others not so much. But it suits my temperament and refusal to conform and, for me, that’s all that matters! Have fun and carry on in your own style Issy, it works! 🙂

    • I’m enjoying these projects very much, Gilly. I can crochet but always had a problem coordinating the knitting 2 needle technique.
      It’s a slow process. At least, I have some finished items to show for all the hours spent practicing. I do remember you posting
      a crochet blanket once. Time to get busy again. : )

  6. I don’t knit, Issy, but when I see something like this, so beautiful, I wish I did…but not really enough to start. Maybe I could get one of my daughters to take it up and then give me the results for Christmas. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving.

    • There’s something about a handmade item that touches the heart. It’s becoming a big craze again as it was in the 60’s.
      If your daughter is interested in starting she can get assistance at any yarn shop. All you have to do is buy their yarn.
      In my town, there’s a yarn shop with a big table that teaches individuals while visiting with others. Recently, baby hats
      were made and donated to our local hospital. Hope she gets the knitting bug. ~~~ : – )

  7. I tried to knit when I was younger but I found I was much better at crochet. LOL! Happy Thanksgiving Issy!

    • Coordinating the 2 needles was my issue. I’ve gotten better at it. I can crochet but there are so many patterns for knitting.
      Hopefully, when I have writers block, I can relax and get some ideas during those relaxing moments. Perhaps, a new hobby
      is in the future for you, PJ. Thanks for enjoying my loving hands work.

    • A huge smile has overtaken my face, Becca. I’m still in the beginning stages. I can crochet but coordinating
      2 needles can be a challenge. Sometimes, I start doing the stitches backwards. LOL I’m having fun. It’s a way
      of getting away from writing when I I’m having writers block. Hope your Thanksgiving was a BLESSED one.
      Issy 😎


I'd Love to hear what you think. Thanks ...
