Hand Knit Sweater

I don't want to sound like a grandma, but I really love knitting... it's one of my favorite things to do. My ideal day would be watching movies/reality shows and knitting like it's my business. I'm getting all excited just thinking about it. When I knit, I usually use big needles with 7gg yarns or above. It is a great technique when trying to acheive a lace-like pattern.

  14. Knitting doesn't have to be categorized as a grandma habit, my sister and a bunch of her friends developed a knitting trend a couple of years ago, but unfortunately I found it very complicated to learn, haha.

    I like to sew though. :)

    And that sweater looks lovely! You're definitely talented :D

  25. Great style and colour too. You did a really good job. My mum use to knit me and my sis clothes for our barbie dolls. Looking back now I can't believe how good she is, I feel so sad I lost it all considering how long they look her. I better give her a hug when I see her next. x
