I have been very lucky to be part of a knitting group that meets every month. They have inspired me to take up my knitting after years of neglect. I have loved the company of these diverse and creative women and also the feeling of having wool, once again, wound around my fingers.
This week I finished making a jumper out of Amy Butler cotton, blended with wool.
I love the lacy waistband.
It is the first, but I think not the last, attempt I will make with triangles.
It was surprisingly easy to make.
I added a few more strips to the backing for my husband's recycled shirt quilt.
And I gave away this little Apples quilt to my colleague's baby, Ruby Rose.
It used to be so hard to part with any of my quilts but now I find I can let go so much more easily.
I guess, after making at least 50 plus quilts, you learn to let go.
The smile on the recipient is worth it.
