my creative space: knitting frenzy

It seems I am currently on a bit of a knitting frenzy! I have completed beanie no. 2! Late last year, when I was getting into crochet... I told my dearest grandma and she was SO excited and happy (she is an obsessive knitter from way way back) that she sent me a massive box with about 40 balls of lovely, various coloured wool!!  I was so excited, but I haven't done much with the wool as I was a bit scared to "stuff up" with grandmas beautiful wool!  I had done a little bit of practice knitting at the time, which I found incomplete, in amongst the wool yesterday! I couldn't remember what I was going to make but I saw it and thought beanie!! I know it's a bit of a daggy beanie but I'm so pleased I could make this little bit of "odd" knitting into a beanie, it looks so cute! So now we have a back up beanie... just in case something happens to the first one!

My poor little grandma LOVES knitting so much but can't do much these days because of arthritis in her hands, it's very sad! I'm going to knit her a little scarf next! :)

There are loads more crafty, creative people over at our creative space...

  2. Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. And thanks for seeing the funny side. Some times I ramble and waffle a lot of nonsense and then worry that readers will think I'm mad.
    Enjoy that big stash of yarn of yours. I firmly believe you can never have too much wool. Which is why I hide mine from my husband. He only knows of about half of it..

  3. Impressive! I'm not a knitter so I love to see what people can do when they are.

  4. That's a lovely story Lamina, your grandma will be pleased to see what you've done with the wool. And it's a dashing beanie on a dashing young model :)

  7. Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog! The beanie is really very cute. My grandma taught me to knit and she would have been delighted had she been around when I finally learned to crochet last year. Hope you enjoy using all that lovely wool - don't be scared of practicing with it; it can always be unravelled and knitted into something else :-)

  10. So very cute Lamina!! Looks well done!
    I'm trying once in a while to learn how to knit but give up very (too?) easily. Somehow I just can't do it!
    I'm always jealous with those who can so easily knit!
