My brother David was an avid knitter. And when he died, he had TONS of books, and yarn and needles that my mother adopted. I went home after having browsed through his books and running my fingers through the yarn. It has been years since I knitted.
So, in what feels like a bizarre tribute to David, I picked up my needles again. I had forgotten everything! Fortunately, KnittingHelp.com has some of the best tutorials for learning to knit that I've come across.
And lo and behold, look what I did!
It's for Miles size, but he loathes it. I'm not sure why since it's 100% wool and still over 90 degrees here on a normal day. So, no action shots. But I did stuff it so you could see the form a little better.
I've also finished my first sock. Working on the mate. They're really nothing to write home about. But I'm having so much fun!
