for my niece


I'm a novice knitter, but after two scarves and three hats, I thought I might try my hand at something different. And just to prove that I really did make it, here's an in-process shot on our way to Iowa last weekend...

it is darling! she will look so sweet in it. I am impressed with your "novice" skill set--what will you be up to when you're more experienced?? sofa slipcovers? :) haha.

Beautiful! Everyone's having fun with your "novice" comment. However, if it's really true :), then I'm inspired to knit again. I've never actually learned and always fall back to crocheting, but there are some "looks" you just can't get with crocheting. Very nice!

Very, very sweet! I think handknits are the cutest things on little kids.
