So my girls modelled some of the items i've knitted for them in the past,
I've decided to include them because I honestly know that although i can mechanically perform the stitches, I wasn't really that good hey!!!
So to begin, when Kimberly was born I borrowed a book from my sister (she later told me to keep it) to make something for my newborn. I didn't have a clue that using a different yarn and needle size meant getting a completely different gauge to what the diagram said it should measure. It should have been a 3-ply on 2.75mm and 3mm needles and i used a heavy aran or chunky on 6mm needles.........
No one in my family corrected me as ( I think) i was having a great time emotionally. So the hat ended up being the size of a tea cosy and the scarf to match, well she still wears them now.
