I actually… finished something… knitted….

Ummmmmm…. wow.

At the grand old age of 28, this is my first ever real knitted anything that wasn’t abandoned half way through, messed up entirely or a scarf.

I know the colour is… questionable, but to be honest, I didn’t actually think I would finish (don’t you just love that cheesy grin? That’s what you get when you say “SMILE!”)…

I love that I am equally clueless about knitting AND crochet, meaning I can turn to the other when one is giving me a headache – and I can add stuff like a cute crochet rose to a garishly coloured knitted vest.

The pattern is from a ye olde opshop knitting pamphlet… I didn’t measure Punk or anything so I just totally guessed which size & hoped for the best. I am so chuffed, it hurts.

  4. Great work Vic! Finishing something knitted is worthy of that cheesy grin. I've NEVER finished something knitted, despite having spent a LOT of time knitting. I'm hopeless, and now so impressed with your effort and somewhat more determined about mine. What's that word that means you stick at something....it's not discipline is it...? Well done!

  10. Am still at the squares/scarf stage of knitting so am jealous that you can do shapes :)

    Very cheesy grin on Punky.

  14. Oh well done, don't you love having a go without a clue and it working, I'm sure we wouldn't half enjoy it as much if it came easy! Punky is soooocute and obviously thinks your THE best mumma in the world, clever you.

  15. I love the WARNING on the pattern. We take no responsibility for you suing an inferior yarn and screwing up the project! You should have bought our product, we did warn you! Don't come crying to us if your child catches fire!

    So, did you use Patons or not? ;-)

  16. I've never finished much with knitting and I have no idea how to crochet... So, kudos to you! ;) And Punky looks just as excited about it as you do!

  17. I think the colours are brilliant! I want one to wear to work so I can pretend to be rainbow brite (altho punk pulls that off a bit better with her lovely long blonde locks)

  18. I think she is as chuffed as you! Well done, excellent flower too.

  21. Oh Golleeee you're so clever, well done! Your Punkette looks so darn pleased with herself too! She's gorgeous! She made me smile so I can imagine how proud you must be feeling. Lovely in every way ;-)
