With my busy schedule, it's become the only creative outlet that I can take advantage of these days.
When my mother taught me the basics — knit and purl — less than a year ago, I never imagined that I could create a garment. It seemed an impossible task. But... I've done it!
First, the inspiration.
The best part about completing this project is the confidence that I've gained for moving forward. I have a much clearer understanding of how garments take shape.
That's a very timely lesson as my knitting class is preparing to take on a top-down sweater. As slow as I am, maybe I'll have it ready to wear by next winter!
