My Experiments in Knitting: 1

I do not know knitting much except for simple knitting style. I can not make designs unless somebody tells me how to make it. And I can not decipher knitting language also. Even with so limited knowledge, once in a while I venture into this domain and try to make sweaters, socks etc. for 'C'. Here is one sweater I had made and designed (I make up for design disadvantage by adding embroidery/ready made stickers/colours) four years back. 'C' was about 3 yrs. old and it came out very well.

Here is back view of the sweater:

Sorry for bad quality of this pic, I cropped it from a video in which kids are running. Here is a good one with front view:

I used three colors furry wool in this knit: light blue, black and light pink. On the front, I embroidered big heart shape and random alphabets. On one side of heart added two cloth stickers. One of the sticker is not clearly visible.
Since it was done four years back, now I only have photographs as my records. Sweater is long gone to a deserving one. It feels nostalgic to see it now. This was my first sweater for my little boy and I can vouch, it was the best. I had put in my heart:-) and mind into it.

  1. you have said limited knowledge in knitting and yet the sweater looks so good. Nice work!

    I am yet to learn knitting, hope i do someday , may be when i leave chennai, as we do not have as much as chilly winters and there is no need for sweaters over here!

  2. Thank you Lakshmi.
    My knowledge is indeed limited but as I said, I make up for it by doing other decorations.

  3. This is very lovely:) I like the front a lot:)

  4. Wow! Wow! I think you've done a fabulous job! As for me... I can't knit or stitch to save my life :-)

  5. You have done a good job. It is so good that your little boy is wearing what you have knitted.
