I Have Come a Long Way

I was looking through some of my first projects and realized how much my knitting had developed.

This is the first sweater I made. The pattern is from a TV show that is no longer on the air.
Edith's Chunky Baby Sweater

I love the dog with bone buttons.

This was my Debbie Bliss Hooded Baby Sweater Period.

More Debbie Bliss! A Kimono I put my own twist on. I did a crochet trim.

This is a free pattern from lionbrand.

My Lupus knitting break has given me time to look back from where I came.
I just love to Knit!

Thank you so very much for your nice comment! I've now put your blog on my list, and looks forward to see what you will do in the future.

Unfortunately there is no translation-thing from Swedish, it's too small as language to be interesting, I suppose. But I try to write in both Swedish and English in my blog, even if some non-knitting parts just is in Swedish. I use to finish my posts with some small notes and tips about wine and winemaking - my second big interest, besides knitting.

Hope you will have a lovely day, see you soon again!

Beautiful sweaters! I've kind of avoided baby sweaters--I know if I start, I'll never stop.

Re lupus and hands: in case this is of any value (while wincing at that, because I know how often people have been so sure they could cure me, just cure me of everything!) Early on in my diagnosis, I went to a physical therapist who specializes in hands who made custom splints to keep my fingers from curling up at night. They go just up to the middle joints of the four fingers, with a cutout for the thumb. Best painkiller ever. I wear old loose socks with heel and toe cut out to line them with and wear them at night. They totally gave me the use of my hands back, I picked up my needles for the first time in years, and the rest is history.
