knitting away and….hibernating

i knit my nephew the very first sweater-vest ever! i refined my knitting with you tube of all things! 

Completing the project and sewing that last beautiful gold button on the charcoal blue sweater i got too excited and mailed it out. Thankfully i just remembered i DID take a pix of the little vest, so i’ll upload it as soon as i can.

For my younger baby nephew who just turned 2 i started knitting a reversible (thank you you tube for teaching me this)! sweater black and yellow with a few stripes so he can be the handsome bee once i get a matching tuque with itty-bitty antennae…

 

knitting is my favorite winter/cold weather past-time and i’ve been on a roll : )

it’s very meditational and relaxing. Especially now that i am swamped with a lot of paperwork and about to prepare helping out for Passover.

Looking forward to posting the lovely (i hope) photos, if anything the cool colors of the cashmere wools, and cashmere blends. 

so, several pix coming soon! 

in the meantime i’ll post 2 pix of my handsome nephews… ImageImageImage

winter knit & summer draw

for whatever reason i encountered a dry spell with drawing the great outdoors outside my place. 

 

so after having an “AH HA!” moment i’ve decided to knit and got on a roll. So, without further ado, i am going to make this blog a bi-seasonal tandem posting of knitting projects completed in the winter and the summer will be drawings. Fall and Spring will have a combo.

 

it will be a Vivaldi’s four seasons…i will focus on flowers as well during spring to add to the mood of rebirth and blossoming… and in the fall, i’ll add some intricacies w leaves, as i’ve seen some v pretty leaves. 

 

I hope you like the idea of variations on a common 2 themes – the art and the wool – hey maybe i’ll glue wool on my drawings to coalesce both themes ; ) 

 

here is only a snippet of what i did this morning… i have knitted a tahitian style bug (which is only partly shown and continued w a cool lizard. it’s hard to tell from the colors.. but it’s electric blue and electric pink…  methinks, why go dreary when it is winter? might as well use cheerful colors and knit interesting critters not found here much. 

 

enjoy! 

 

do you like the idea? yay nay?

it may look like a sweater for a hamster…but it is the beginning part of a headband. thought i’d start small… but i already am excited and feel like knitting touques,, socks, gloves, sweaters.. : ) maybe my next project will be to knit something cool for my 2 nephews with lizards and other cool stuff
