make-over

Courtesy of my darling friends, an old knit (finished and gifted more than two years ago!) recently got a “make-over” photoshoot. I had taken some crappy photos of it originally, but they never really did the piece justice, and I was more than happy to chuck them out from my project page and replace them with these…

I can’t place it on the knitterly timeline very precisely, but I know that this hat was among my first ten finished objects ever. Not too bad, eh? It’s a really good feeling to look back on something I made when I still barely had any idea what I was doing when picking up needles, and see something that I’d be proud of even today, when I have a lot more skill and experience.

I’m sure you’ve caught peaks of another (more recent) FO in the photos as well. More to come on that soon… :)

In the meantime, a huge thanks to my stunning photographer/model duo Matea and Maja :*

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.
