I tried to understand the basics, but struggled to start the project. After spending one hour with trials and failure just to cast on, I finally nailed it, and could get started. And from the, it went ok until binding off...I ended up with transferring the stitches to a long circular needle, bringing them home and knit end and beginning together to form a wide cowl.
My mother used to knit, crothed etc. After breast cancer, she can no longer enjoy these hobbies. So I decided to knit her a jacket in my favourite yarn. Geilsk Tweed. We looked at the web page, and she liked the model "Knap nok" and she wanted a grey tweed jacket.
And as I understood it, 10 different buttons- was just not her thing. So this jacket is with handmade buttons from Ellastikk.
We had the pleasuer of spending a weekend with our little grand daughter and my mother in law this fall. We took my mother in law to a factory outlet with yarn. The little granddaughter being very used to grandma knitting for her, went in to the shop and looked around. She found Yellow yarn. "Yellow" she sad very enthusiastic. And then she started to look around the yarn store. "No OWL?" And I remembered that I had her with me when we went to another shop where there were several knitten owls. We fount an owl patter. Bought the yarn. And now she has a yellow owl sweather.
