Mini scarf. . . I think it will be one of my grandma's christmas gifts b/c she loves teal and the button reminded me of her Smiley


okay, so this is the sad part:

^this one was for size reference.

Yep, a beanie for a cone-shaped, very small, child's head. . . ouch, I know.

However, I am making one in this beautiful cream color and I do believe I know how to fix it now. So, I guess it was quite a learning experience. And plus, it took only a couple of hours, so no harm done.

Progress shot of new and improved beanie:



Baby Cardigan I am finishing during my next lesson (Thursday):
It's a really light, baby-ish green. The color is super cute!


I started at the bottom of the back, so next comes the sleeves!
I'm making two - because my friend had twins (one girl and one boy!) Smiley

So, I know it's not THAT impressive, but I'm quite happy with all of my items. . .well, not the green cone head beanie. . .

Anyway, feedback/tips/whatever appreciated!

Knitting lessons at this yarn shop I've only recently found!
The girl who teaches me is 23, so it's cool to not be the only young person in there.
My town still views knitting as an old-lady hobby. They are closed-minded.

Anyway, this beanie was pretty easy. All you do is knit a large rectangle, slowly decrease after a while, and seam up the side. It's a good way to learn decreasing. . .

And apparently this baby cardigan is supposed to be pretty easy.

Are you on ravelry?

Lovely! and I second the comment about wanting to take knitting lessons as well!

So far though, I haven't managed to find anywhere here in Western Australia who offers them!
