After what my profile says is a year and 35 days of being a member -often more silent than not- I think it is time for me to get in touch with the knitting community here on MWK. I have to admit that it seems a lot of time seeing it written like that, but somehow it has been more than entertaining, following everybodys projects and even getting the answers I needed from questions other people asked.
After another year of knitting, which has been my most productive yet, I wanted to share a couple of projects that have raised my satisfaction level with my knitting produces. The first is a (very) slight variation of a pattern I found on Ravelry, called Destroyed Cowl. This was the first thing I knit for myself (I seem to enjoy knitting more when it's for other people, but sometimes one has to take care of oneself) and haven't had a chance to really wear it, but I do take it out of the wardrobe every now and then. The second is my first completely improvised pattern! Completely from scratch, with no more than my knitting instinct (which I can assure has taken its time to develop), I came up with this hat with earflaps and pompom! ( I was really proud of it, even if it did come out a bit wonky). I have attached photos, so please take a look.
And here it ends, for now.
