A Yarn to Learn

Marina completed her first sweater. I'm very impressed:

Knitting is a skill that impresses me. My own attempts never got further than a misshapen square-ish piece of cloth. Marina can actually read knitting patterns. She alters the patterns to suit her purpose! She adjusted a pattern she found in Charmed Knits to make this sweater.

Just think, she could design and knit her own wardrobe! She could knit clothes for me, too!

I wonder if I can teach Chase or Sierra to cobble shoes? I would never need to step into a department store again.

That's gorgeous! I love the idea of having the other kids learn to cobble shoes. *LOL!* Good luck with that!

Way to go Marina!! It looks so professional! How long does it take to knit a sweater? It looks lovely! I'm very impressed.

Beautiful job! I know that she spent a lot of time working on this sweater when she came to visit after Xmas. I hope she enjoys wearing this gorgeous sweater.
Love, Aunt Linda

What a great job! Holy moly, I can't believe she got it so well. It even has great shape and is flattering. If I tried to really knit one, you could TELL I did it.
