Keeping Warm in Festive Knitted Fashion
Several years ago I revisited the art of knitting after a 30 year hiatus. I learned to knit before I could write. My grandmothers and aunts were all avid knitters… it was all around me all the time and soon I became interested in learning myself. Much like riding a bicycle, once learned one never really forgets how to do it. Not having as much time for complicated and time consuming creative projects, I find knitting to be a very convenient creative activity; it is the kind of work that can easily be taken from place to place and worked on in short intervals without losing track of one’s progress.
This year I decided to make several knitted gifts. This is the hat and scarf I made for my favorite 3 year old to wear during the cold wintery days of December made in festive green and red… an early gift just in time for the holidays. I hope she likes it!
