It’s been a while since I posted last. I started some small projects (baby cap, i crocheted round stones (yes, i did..) and used the evenings for my Peter Rabbit embroidery). Few days ago i was about to post, but then we got some very sad news.
My husband’s grandma suddenly passed away. She was a very feisty and lively lady. I loved her very much and admired her knitting. Within no time she managed to knit lovely cabled (or other pretty patterns) sweaters, vests and so on, without the use of a pattern.
Yesterday i got a pick from her leftover yarn bag. And also got some needles. I’ve started a hat for the baby. It will be in “koffieboontje” (coffee bean) pattern. (i think it’s a traditional Dutch pattern, so description of it is later in this post). Going to try to spiral the pattern. Let’s see if it turns out as well as i have in mind.
The colours are beautiful, very vibrant and lively as nani (grandma) was.
It will be a lovely reminder of her.
Another hat was also in progress, golden yellow yarn with seed stitch pattern.
(1st row: knit 1, purl 1.
2nd row: purl 1, knit 1
