Melanie is hosting a contest for free yarn, of course, and even better, it’s her own hand-dyed beauts! All you have to do is post either your first knitted item or what you plan to knit next.
I don’t have the very first or second items I knit, scarves of course, because they live with my nieces in Virginia. But I can show you the third and fourth items and hope they’re good enough. They’re caps, still one of my favorite things for a quick fix. I made caps for the Sweeties for Christmas in 2002, and here they are.
The first picture is of the cap I made for Sweetie Boy. It was a Christmas gift, and this is the pic I took that Christmas morning. He was only 5 at the time.
The second picture is the one I made for Sweetie Girl who was 2 at the time. Her cap was also for Christmas, but this picture was taken New Year’s Day at California Adventure. She’s riding with the Sweetie Nieces of first-and-second-knitted-item fame. I love seeing all of their chubby, happy faces from five years ago.
Thanks for strolling down memory lane with me. If you want to play along in Melanie’s contest, be sure to mention that Dim Sum Mary sent you!
