Anyone lost a garden gnome?
Over the Easter break I finished the hooded scarf pattern that I won from the lovely Foxs Lane blog (thank you Kate!). It's one of a beautiful range of beginner knitting kits from Australian company Olive and me.
The pattern was very easy to follow and well written. Once I got the hang of it, it didn't take very long to finish and was really satisfying.
The finished product is very warm and cozy, and the hood can be worn down...
Or up, great for hiding ;-)
My only problem with knitting now is that I am head over heels in love with the pattern below, the "Effortless cardigan", which certainly would NOT be effortless for this novice!! So please, knitters out there, tell me how I go from my schoodie to that - what sort of project can I do as a step between? Or do I dive in and Google every step? Help!!
Have a lovely weekend friends.
