In November, I posted a few wearables I had knitted. Click here if you missed it.
I started attending a knitting group, that meets at our local library, once a week since August, 2017.
I’ve been relearning my knitting skill from my youthful years. I must admit its’ been a pleasure.
I’ve learned some new skills: working with round needles, better pattern reading, tunisian crochet,
brioche knit stitch and blocking your finished garment.
The two hats above are for babies. These two hats helped me gain an understanding of working
with double pointed needles after the hats stitches have been decreased.
The hat with 2 pom-poms was gifted to a friend who was having a baby boy.
The hat with one pom-pom is in a box waiting for additional preemie hats to be made for a Christmas hospital drive.
I must work on pom-pom skills.
The photos of the pink stripe hat was a gift for one of my grandchildren.
This peach shawl took me about 5 months to complete. The slide show is about the process of blocking.
I’ve been enjoying the calming effects of knitting. It helps with manual dexterity, focus of mind and
it isn’t a bad way to meet friendly helpful people. I’ve made new friend along the way.
We’re of all skill levels; meeting and helping those who pop in with a desire to learn to crochet or knit.
I hope you enjoy some of the items I’ve been working on. I hope to add more as I go on.
Happy Crafting … Isadora
