When you move to a new city, one of the crucial things is making new friends. You have to make good friends, in front of who you don’t mind being silly. This is not easy. But if I didn’t have at least two or three such people in a place where I live, I would wither away and die. Luckily, I seem to come across such people quite easily. In three months, I’ve made some good friends, who feed me pumpkin pie and visit me when I’m sick and understand me when I’m being (very) silly. :) But still I’m a bit too bashful about asking them to take photos of me while I pose in my knitted items. I’m actually quite bashful about asking that from friends I’ve known for more than ten years! Having a boyfriend with an interest in photography bailed me out a few times earlier. Since I no longer have that now, I had to be creative. So today I had a quick impromptu auto-photo-shoot. And I think the pictures came out quite nicely.


I knit this back in September, intending to give it a way. But it had no specific intended recipient, and on one cold day, it somehow ended up on my head.


It protects me so well from the cold, the rain, the wind, the snow… I call it my Knitted Russian Fur Hat :)


Can you tell I went a little silly with the photo-shoot? :)

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
