About four years ago I gave myself a challenge - I would learn to knit. I have never been able to knit, my family is/was not a needlework family. But my mother and sister in law is. They created one more lovely thing after the other for their wardrobe. So my sister in law became my knitting coach, and I'm a nice student. Here are what I've made since last spring:
A spring green cardigan with very nice daisy buttons:
Look at the nice buttons:
After finishing the green cardigan, I knitted this easy grey mohair blouse:
And I've just finished this raspberry pink crocheted cardigan:
And in between, I've crocheted acorns like a mad:
Knitting and crocheting is also the best anti-stress drug I've found, and as an extra bonus I create usable things for my wardrobe and as gifts.
PS: Did you notice the dress form? Dear Husband has given it to me, and I LOVE it! :)
