Nala & Summer Days

Finally some modeled photos of those two little knits I have finished a long time ago.
Both shrugs (or in my case a shrug and a cropped cardigan) are designed by talented Elena Nodel (a.k.a Anadiomena on Ravelry).

A Small Epiphany

Recently I realized that over the years sometimes I actually have been knitting using my own ideas. Maybe it's time to revisit some of them and write them down.
So as a first try I have decided to re-knit this cardigan in smaller size so it would be my newborn baby girl's first knitwear for upcoming fall.
This was the original idea:

My elder daughter wore it to the kindergarten quite frequently.  It was very comfortable, didn't get in a way of all that jumping, running, climbing and what not.

Spikelets Cowl

Last month I have published my first pattern  - Spikelets Cowl


I asked my niece to participate in a short photo shoot for the pattern and she bravely agreed.
Why bravely? Because it's 33 degrees outside and it does not get any cooler for at least a couple of weeks.

The First One

Generally I am a very private person until it comes to knitting.
I could knit all day long and try very much to do so. But when I cannot longer feel my hands I read about knitting and plan my future projects.
So that is what my blog will be all about.
