Les Fleurs

It was an overcast day today... But that was nice for photographing some of my lovely flowers!

I finished the ribbing and began the lace on my Ribbed Lace Bolero. I will probably get a bit further along seeing as it's only early evening right now. Hopefully by the next time I post, I will have something worth photographing. ^_^

I knit a Feather and Fan Stitch washcloth for my grandmother the other day. I am trying to help replace all her old worn out ones with nice handknit ones. She knits, as well, but she only likes to do scarves using different knit/purl combinations. She just likes to relax in front of the television with her knitting, so she's not really interested in working on anything more complicated than that, she tells me.

Oddly enough, she kind of re-learned how to knit when I first learned. Two years ago I joined a knitting club at school because I was always curious about knitting. When I came home and showed her what I learned that kind of made he get back her knitting spark. I helped her remember the basics. So, while most people learn to knit from their grandmothers, I sort of taught mine.

How did you first learn to knit?

Aww... that's such a nice story! I learned to knit from a book (SNB) that I received for Christmas about 3 and 1/2 years ago. My aunt's ex-husband's family was sharing Christmas with us and remarked on what a "nice wife" a would make one day. I told them it was true, because I'm awesome, but it had nothing to do with knitting.
