I'm Finally Knitting! Knit For VictoryAfter my enthusiastic post a little while ago about learning to knit, I had to stop almost right away because of my move to England. The day before I left however, my mother gifted me this great pack with 10 skeins of beautiful petrol colored yarn. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take it with me, but my mother put it in a box with some other stuff that she send to me which arrived on my birthday.
I'm in love with this illustration! The whole outfit is so perfect.
I am so excited to finally be knitting my first garment! And it really is an easy pattern. There were some things I didn't understand at first, like DC (double crochet) but nothing I wasn't able to figure out with the help of Google and YouTube. So far I've finished the back and I am now working on the left front. The back was smooth sailing but for some reason I keep making mistakes with the left front piece. I had to rip out a large part three times already!
And now I am just hoping it will fit!
