I've only really picked the needles up again recently after a very very long time of pretending that I didn't want to knit  Roll Eyes  Long story but I once knitted a jumper for my dear Dad and there was something wrong with the wool and it didn't survive the wash despite my mother's best efforts.
Anyway no rambling.  Last year I decided that there are just too many lovely wools out there now for me to not want to knit so I started with the usual scarves and made some for some friends children.  This year nearly everyone got one Smiley


My skills are rusty and I can't see me knitting a jumper anytime soon but I finally progressed from scarves and knit my first ever pair of fingerless gloves.  All credit to Eithne Farry's book 'Yeah! I made it myself'


Thanks for looking.  I know my stuff is nowhere near as good as the wonderful stuff I see on this board but I just wanted to be able to finally share something that I've done. Smiley

lovely scarves and lovely colors!  i'm glad you've rediscovered your love for knitting, despite washing tragedies.  i'm always terrified of washing tragedies!

Thanks Smiley
I think that's why I'll stick to scarves and gloves for a while longer - those washing machines have teeth  Embarrassed
