I am not a knitter. In fact, apart from doing a small sample square in sewing when I was young, I have never knitted anything. I had an Aunt who did beautiful knitting for us kids and teens, so why bother?
I did make a crocheted top and some berets back in the 70s, but nothing since.
Then I saw this wool......
and just had to buy it.
I was going to make a crocheted scarf, but my daughter commented that it would look good as a poncho for my Grandson.....
I searched on the internet (wonderful place!) and found a very simple pattern, which could be crocheted or knitted. I tried a couple of rows crocheted, but it was just too thick and bulky, so I decided to give knitting a go. After all, I only needed to make 2 rectangles and stitch them together!
It has only taken me 4 evenings! :)
Can't wait to give it to him and see how it looks! :)
I live in the beautiful Hunter Valley in Australia with my DH. Daughter L is married to M and had a baby boy in 2010. Son G is married to D, and they had a baby girl in 2011.
Apart from adoring and playing with my 2 Grandchildren, I quilt, paint, and craft whenever I can take time away from working in our business (which is probably more often than I really should!)
Thanks for stopping by, and please, leave a comment or say hi!
