taigerchily: knitting and me...

i learned at school how to knit when i was 7 years old, i guess. i thought it's terrible, cause whatever i tried to knit, it also looked terrible. so i was sure i CAN'T knit, for more then 20 years... just when i was pregnant and i wanted to do something for my baby, i startet to knit again... AND: i succeded! it looked good enough!

because i am a big fan of iceland, i chose to knit something with icelandic pattern of course!

here are my first tries:

and so i started to knit more and more...

my first pullover:

a good friend of mine saw that first pullover and asked - just for fun - if she could order such a pullover... well, she could!

my second pullover:

next thing i tried was a coatee: there is no better pic of it yet...

at the moment i knit a pullover for my nephew, but i don't have a pic of it...

my son with pullover and cap - together with my husband

well, i live in switzerland (so my english isn't that good...), am 30 years old, have one son: Jón Matti Elias, 8 months. i am a big fan of scandinavia, esp. of iceland and finland. there are a lot of pics and stuff of my family on our website (german only).

that's it for the moment =)

Love your work.
I have yet to make any hats. I tried a sock, but I am not too comfortable with the double pointed needles. Most things I've made didn't make it to the computer. But i have some finished projects on http://home.chello.no/~famwiik/knitting.html . Not all is there, I'm still setting things up. :)
