I started this blog in October of 2011. That’s a long time to be blogging, and an awful lot of posts. For today’s Lockdown Flashback, I take you back to the last day of 2011 when I wrote the post Capping off the Year. This post shows off the just-finished Peerie Flooers hat by Kate Davies, my first foray into knitting fair isle. I love this photo of all of the threads waiting to be woven in:
Please note that I am now a better fair isle knitter and the reverse side of my recent fair isle hats look way neater than this. 🙂 That is one of the things that I like about having this blog – it is a record, and I can see how I’ve grown and learned new things. I look back at these early posts with some fondness. I was still trying to figure out this blogging thing (with a lot of help from Emma) and having a lot of fun.
If you are interested in the pullover I am wearing in the post, I wrote a nice Wearability Wednesday post about it in October of 2012 called Fuzzy and Blue.
Keep well, my friends!
