My new favorite hobby! Knitting. Yep, as a quilter I went over to the “dark side.” But I’ve found, as all knitters before me, that it’s easy to work on knitting projects in the car, to stop and start them; which just isn’t the case with sewing.
My favorite designer is Elizabeth Smith (photo credit to her on the right!). I’ve made several of her patterns and they are all wonderful and have excellent directions and photos. I’ve made her Saturday Sleeves, Castaway Top, Summer Soundtrack Cowl….and I have her Summer Soundtrack Top and Poncheta in my queue.
The picture on the left is my version of her Summer Soundtrack Cowl. And I’m now working on her Summer Soundtrack Top because I liked the pattern no much. And no, I’m not an affiliate, I don’t know her personally, I just happen to like her designs: simple and modern. And because I’m a new knitter, I’ve found that her directions are clear and understandable.
If you are a knitter, happy knitting!
