I learnt so much with this project, practically and internally

so much required from me

including patience

persistance

invention

commitment

IMG_4683it’s the February pattern from Elizabeth Zimmerman’s book, The Knitter’s Almanac

adapted to big girl size with lots of trial and error! remember this...

an excellent, amusing guide to knitting projects throughout a year.

you can see my ravelry notes for the February girl Sweater/cardigan here…

Are you still knitting this late in the year if you are in the southern hemisphere?

and what are you starting to warm yourself in the coming months if you are in the north?

  1. That’s beautiful Rosi! I’ve just finished a similar shape/style one for Cherry’s Christmas present (without all the complicated pattern!). Lily looks extremely happy with hers xx
