Several years back I gave up knitting. I even gave away the rest of my yarn and knitting needles - that was how determined I was. My arms hurt, and it was not that fun anymore.
Last year I bought some yarn in Canada, as well as bamboo knitting needles, and I found I can knit a little again.
The preemie hats and booties are my only finishes for May, and I will donate them to Amandaprosjektet.
I had decided on not having more knitting yarn than what could fit in this small Ikea box. I guess I have to get busy, as DD2 did some yarn shopping for me today, and got a bit carried away - she came home with 4 balls of soft baby wool instead of 2 balls :-)
The bigger balls of yarn I have are sock yarn, not suitable for tender baby skin. I love wool socks in the morning, during winter.
The baby hats are the most fun to make, and I am playing around with lace knitting and braids, and they are finished in a few hours. I also like the thought of warming some wee babies and their parents with my work.
I will do sewing machine work again tomorrow -
I love patchwork and quilting the most :-)
