It’s becoming really chilly around here (The Netherlands, that is), so I picked up an old favorite: knitting! I’m not the one for very large knitting projects, or any large project, so I stick with knitting for my little daughters. I knitted this sweater; with very thick yarn and 10 mm needles (size 15 in US).
The turtle neck I made with something I never used, or ever saw before: a Quick Knit. It's like spool knitting with a very large spool. Very easy!
To break the petrol blue color block of the sweater a little I made a Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Pin. After making two paintings last week, I got the taste for it. With all his colors Elmer is such a nice creature to paint!
