SOME KNITTING, FOR A CHANGE...
After all that time spent on Julia's quilt,
I needed some change, and decided to indulge
myself into some
, YAY !
My beloved grandma' used to knit beautiful items,
such as sweaters, shawls, scarves, etc...
and she taught me the basics.
So, armed with a lovely variegated yarn,
(King Cole Shine DK - Rhapsody)
and short knitting needles, I decided to try my hands
on a scarf for next winter, and I browsed through
you-tube wonderful video tutorials (LOVE these!)
(clic), named "The Feather and Fan"
knitting stitch, and it looked quite do-able...
My-Oh-My ! I had to undo my works at least ten times,
until I figured the pattern sequence properly !
Yet, what a woman wants...
I finally mastered the process,
and now I'm on a roll
At last, I can peacefully knit my scarf,
in thoughts and memories about my grandma'
Whatever you're making,
, my friends !
