The 1st BIG knitted thing

I completly forgot to tell you about a very important thing, which took place yesterday.

In this book - "The knit stitch" by Sally Melville - Anne-Sophie found her 1st big thing to knit. In the book you can find so many wonderful knits - all easy to make and for knitters who have just begun the adventure it is to knit!

Anne-Sophie decided on a poncho knitted on needles number 8....

She was so excited about getting started and I had promised her that I would pay for the yarn, so off we went to "Mathilde".

At first Anne-sophie had thought about making the poncho in off-white yarn but ended up choosing a wonderful, soft wool in black. With 10 skeins and new knitting needles in the bag, we left the shop.

Afterwards we had to get a little suitcase for knitting needles. It is supposed to contain her newly started collection of knitting accessories.....

While walking to the bus Anne-sophie happily said to me: "If only we were in the bus already so I could knit........"

She is definitely hooked on knitting.

  1. Ser superlækkert ud det garn. Og pinde nr. 8 - hun kan da vist godt begynde at se sig om efter projekt nr. 2 ;-)

    *GG* Du kunne da også ha taget strikkepinde med, så hun kunne være startet i bussen. Skønt at høre, hun er SÅ motiveret for alt det kreative,- du ved jeg er dødmisundelig :0)

  5. Det er et lækkert garn, Gitte - super blødt og så strikker Anne-Sophie ufatteligt jævnt, så det tager sig godt ud.

    Det går stærkt med så tykke pinde og med den ihærdighed hun udviser så..... :0)

    ..............

    She's so happy about the whole project, Leslie. And the little suitcase will so be full of knitting needels - at least if she keeps on being so crazy about knitting ;0)

    ..............

    Det er bare sådan en stor glæde, Jeannette Mariae! Jeg glædte mig faktisk lige så meget til at hun skulle vælge garn, som hun selv gjorde.

    .................

    Ja, det manglede da bare, at jeg havde haft en rundpind i inderlommen, Gitte ;0).
    Hun gik i gang så snart vi trådte indenfor døren, og er allerede nået et godt stykke...

    Det er underligt som det lige pludselig har grebet hende. Men håndarbejdsskolen gjorde bestemt sit :0) Jeg nyder det og det samme gør Christian....
