Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Standard

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! fullsizeoutput_fe1
