juliet cap and (almost) cowl

I knit veeeeeerrrry sloooooooowly, but I feel so chuffed with the results (so far). My mom gave me 4 x 50g balls of Vinnis Serina Turquoise a while ago and asked me to crochet her a tight fitting cap. But this year, I wanted to start knitting again. With very basic knitting skills, I found this lovely pattern on loveknitting.com with just enough interest (little faux cables) and not too scary (technique). I’m really good at practical maths, so after checking my gauge, it was easy to work out how many stitches I needed for the cap. Knitting a texture or pattern is definitely a state of mind. It took me 3 castings on and progressing to row 7 to really get into it. I promise you, I kept reading this pattern till the end. There was just no way that I could predict the repeats of those 12 rows. The nice thing about that is that it was SUCH A CHALLENGE! That’s what I love about knitting! It’s uncomfortable! My one finger had broken skin on it (from pushing back the tip of the needle in my right hand). But seeing those little winding trellises emerge and finishing my rows with the exact amount of stitches left on the pattern! Wow!

Knitting is my new adventure. Yay!

Hope you have a super weekend!
