Dark days before Christmas, what to do when the days are getting shorter and you are thinking about what kind of presents your getting for your kids and family?
I discovered knitting! It sounds old fashion but it’s definitely not. Look at some pictures here.
The first I started off to gather some information about knitting itself, how to do it, what kind of materials to use, ask my mother for help . I looked on youtube about some films of how to knit the basics, and I find some.
Started to go to the shop bought for € 5,00 knitting needles and wool, then I crawled behind the computer with my youtube film on and started to try to knit. And it worked… I made 2 scarfs. I found some nice sites for Eco Wool from Alpaca’s, there Lama sorts of animals they give nice wool that is not itchy, I just so hate wool that is itchy:( My true love wool from Alpaca and it’s animal friendly and cheap!
Now I’m making a scarf for my husband total cost of €3,00 a nice brown color matching his winter jacket, from yarn that is suitable in the washing machine, how convenient. Now I have to learn how to knit by patterns, than I can make actually some knitted sweaters for my husband and kits even for myself. And have a nice handmade modern, personal and cheap present with my own personal touch.
I’ll keep you updated how the knitting is working out for me, so far it is relaxing to do, the thing with knitting is you can knit for a few minuets till hours, put it away and pick it up when ever you like. I just know a few knitting stitches. But even with a basic stitch you can make so many things, like caps and accessory for your lifestyle fashion and clothes. Like this scarf thats knitted is a strait stitch (the basic stitch) With thick wool and a big knitting needle like 10mm.
