I hadnt knitted for a few years.
My eldest sister recently died which Ive been struggling to come to terms with, so I thought Id give it a go again.
My nephew and his wife were expecting their first child, born yesterday, and so decided to knit something for the new baby.
Ive only ever knitted adult projects before and thought this might ease me back in again.
It took me about 2 weeks to complete the jacket and hat, which was quite quick for me!
The only problem I had was when I attached the first sleeve. It didnt look very good so I tried unpicking it to redo but because I couldnt tell the difference Id undone the knitting rather than the seam! So I sewed it back up and left it as it is in the photo.
Even though its early days yet Ive found its helped having something positive to focus on and I will definitely carry on knitting now.
