Mother-Daughter Knitting. Is she knitting for a new baby and her daughter for a doll? Very sweet illustration of a mother actually spending some quality time with her girl and teaching her something.

Knitting...reminds me of evenings with my mum in front of the fire when I was a little girl. Never underestimate the lasting love forged in those times.

knitting: I learned from wise women, I took what they knew and added it to my own adventurous style. I may discover a pattern, but I rarely copy it. No two designs are exactly alike, each one is an original piece made for an original person. A Testament to the wise women who shared their love and skill with a curious girl.

Knit Tea Towel Topper - I think I like the idea of knitting this holder rather than directly on to the towel itself. So handy and quick.

After this knitting fail, I wanted to make something quick and easy. I always wanted one of these chunky cowls that look so comfortable. I had two skeins of Loops and Thread Cozy Wool yarn in Golden Rod from Michael's. I'd actually already used one skein to make a different cowl last year, which I wasn't in love with...So I took it appart and combined both skeins to make this cowl.   I didn't use a pattern, it's just a seed stitch that I knitted in the round on size #11 needles. I can't remember how many stitches I cast on, probably around 100... I really like the color, it adds a bit of peps to any outfit and it kind of goes with everything too.     I've been wearing it outside with my winter coat, as well as inside with sweaters and cardigans. It's already become a favorite... I have two other knitting projects lined up: this winter hat as well as this cotton sweater for spring...
