Second day I stayed home with my son who is sick with the flu. He had fever the night before and now he's coughing, runny nose etc...The thing with this boy is, he doesn't act like he's sick. Running all over the place and refusing to take a nap. *Sigh* Tomorrow is Friday and I'm taking him to his preschool. If he can run at home, he can run there!
I took advantage of the time at home to practice some more knitting and I think I'm getting the hang of it! Next thing I have to learn is to cast off. I took a picture of this first project so I can look back and see how far I've come. I'll also take a picture of the middle and of course, the end product.
It was snowing this morning when I woke up! I tried to take some pictures of the big fat beautiful snowflakes. My son loved watching it come down!
I've always loved the look of 1940's knitted sewaters and shrugs, but haven't been able to find one. I did find very cute reproductions at Rocket Originals but can't afford to buy right now (I think I'll put some on my birthday list!). Any way, my little sis introduced me to knitting when she came to visit the other day. I was so impressed that she taught herself with books and online video tutorials on how to knit. If she could do it why can't I? I started getting ahead of myself and got excited with the idea that I could start knitting my own vintage sweaters. But of course, in reality it's going to take time and practice. I already learned how to cast on, and made 2 rows so far. My first project has to be something simple like a scarf. But I'm pretty excited with this because I never dreamed I could learn how to knit. Here are some pictures of some vintage sweaters that I hope one day I'll knit.
