As some of you know - I took up knitting a few weeks ago...I figured I would make a Christmas stocking for Astrid and call it good. Well, I'm afraid I have stumbled upon something that is here to stay... I can't see an end to the project ideas I have in my mind...
I have a sweater that I have been working on for Astrid, but I ran out of the black yarn - so it is missing a sleeve (and I can't wait for the yarn store to open so I can finish it!)...I'm SURE you will be seeing more pics of her in it when I'm done. When I first started knitting the sweater I wasn't sure about my choice of black...and I had a sinking feeling that I wouldn't like the end result...but once I started knitting the stripes a colorful rastafarian sweater appeared!
With a little help from Lisa & Sharon in a couple of tricky spots I had very little trouble. It was a remarkably easy knit for a beginner. I'm very anxious to hear what my sis-in-law Katie thinks! She started knitting a couple years ago and has been knitting like crazy ever since! These knitters in my life have been quite an inspiration to me!
