I’m excited to introduce a new feature on my blog – 52 Knits!
As my art supplies are very (very) limited seen that I’m living in a dorm 8000km from home, I decided to concentrate on knitting for the next months. Hopefully there will be more knitting related blog posts in the future besides the 52 Knits project. If you’d like to see anything specific (wool-related) on here, shoot me an e-mail or comment below. I was thinking about a ‘getting started guide’, how I choose yarn and knitting patterns and I have been thinking about designing patterns in the future. I’m excited!
52 Knits // O W L SJanuary 23, 2012
Yarn Used: 1.5 skeins of Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool
Needles: 5.5mm and 6mm circular needles and 6mm DPNs
Note: This was the first sweater I knitted and I’m hooked! There are so many beautiful sweater patterns out there and I don’t know why I waited so long to try it. The pattern was easy to follow and didn’t require many special techniques – definitely a great pattern as a first sweater 🙂
I’m sorry about the bad picture but it has been raining for days here and it was super windy. I refused to take off the hat and the scarf because it was freezing outside and it took quite some time to bring myself to take off my jacket. As soon as the weather will get better I’ll take some more detailed pictures.
