Today my creative space is quite destructive (in a good way of course). I spent yesterday digging out our winter clothes from the huge cabin trunk in our bedroom. Most of the space is taken by about 50 beautiful handknit sweaters. My lovely Mum who is a very talented knitter, knit most of them for my now 12 year old neice and they have been handed down to my girls. She is still knitting beautiful sweaters and so we have ended up with quite a few. There are a couple that Miss Fussy Madeleine just won't wear including a beautiful green sweater that is a little tight around her neck. So I unraveled it using this tutorial.
This is what she wants me to re-knit it into
I love it but I don't know if I'm brave enough to tackle all those new stitches!
She chose it just before she went to bed and said to me "So will it be ready for me by the morning Mum?" I really have to start managing my daughters' expectations of what I can do a little better!
And because I always have several projects on the go, I'm working on some slippers for Maddy.
At some stage today, I need to get to the post office with this beautiful piece of art.
