For all I said I have not been cross stitching as it strains me more, but have been doing some knitting, as I always need to have some handwork ongoing to relax.
This photo shows how we, Portuguese, knit. We work with the thread either around our necks or hanging from a pin.
I have already knitted a baby's coat for the baby of a friend of ours, but unfortunately I didn´t take any photos.
I also knitted 2 scarves for me and asked my girls to model them, so that I could show them to you.
My baby Josephine didn´t mind at all, but Georgina says modelling it's not her thing...
Now I'm knitting a poncho, made out of 2 rectangles.
I will show you how it turns out when finished.
Until then, I wish you all the best and if you come by, please, leave a comment.
I'm sorry to hear of your health. I hope you are doing ok. I love seeing how you knit-- so interesting! Beautiful projects, and beautiful models as well!
Hope you doing better soon.
It's looking beautifull.
here we call them roundknitting
Desejo que tenhas umas melhoras rápidas :) E que a recuperação seja rápida. As modelos estão muito bem nas fotos e os projectos são muito giros.
Também é assim que eu sei tricotar, ensinada pela minha mãe, tentei fazer à moda inglesa quando decidi relembrar como se fazia trico à 1 ou 2 anos atrás mas desisti porque não conseguia apanhar o jeito, tive que pedir à minha mãe para me mostrar novamente :)
Fico à espera de ver o poncho completo, adoro a cor escolhida.
I'm so sorry to hear about your heart attack, Christina--hopefully, the operation has fixed the problem. My mom had a heart attack at age 69 and it took her a few years to get back to her normal energy level. Today, at 86, she is lively and happy :) Best of luck to you... So glad your lovely knitting provides some comfort and relaxation!
