My dr. daughter has become quite a knitter. I taught all my kids to knit years ago. We recently went through their memory bins in our attic and found some treasures. This was a purse that Annie knit.
And I think Maggie knit this as a gift to Annie. Maggie had quite a few more items in her bin that I do not have a photo of.
But before she graduated med school, she was determined to make me a Celtic Myths Shawl. I had made her one for her St. Patrick’s Day Wedding. So she went to a local knit shop, bought yarn and a lesson and got started. She didn’t make much progress until she moved back to Cleveland. And she was persistent. What a treasure it is! I love it! We took some photos down at the lake. You can read about the Celtic Myths Shawl I made for her here. When she finished, she had some leftover yarn and asked for another, so she made me a celtic headband called Elisbeth.
I encouraged her to have an easy project at the ready for whenever she got stuck or for travel. She whipped out this cowl.
She enjoyed cables so I found a project for her from Ysolda’s Whimsical Little Knits 2. It’s the Emily Capelet. She worked on it during some recent travels and it was a perfect little knit. The cables were much faster. It’s really cute. She has mastered weaving in ends and now I have to teach her how to sew on buttons. But I’m no expert at that. She didn’t have enough time to learn how to block her knitting, so I made a quick pictorial for her to refer down the road.
I’ll update this when she is finished. I can’t wait to see it!
