Vof vof vof, it’s me Hanna and today we have a craft alond day with my friend Miss Moose!
She asked me to teach her to knit. Well, about knitting I know a little bit because I take care always how Teje does that. So I promised to give her a lesson.
Nero helped me to carry all the supplies out on the woods. Also Nero was very kind to give us some wool to start. Nero has so much fur and you can see that all the inside wool is leaving now. We could brush him non-stop!
So are you ready to begin, Miss Moose!
First I explained to her that we need wool and cards to create yarn. Miss Moose looks confused but don’t worry, she will do just fine.
Good that we have cards from Teje’s grandmother.
I showed to Miss Moose how to work the wool between the cards.
I can say that she was very good student and concentrated well to learn.
Many things are difficult when we try for the first time. But it’s always worth of trying! Unfortunately we had forgot that we don’t have spinning-wheel! It’s still in the attic in Finland and without that we can’t make yarn.
So now what? We want to knit! I knew that Teje has yarn in her drawer so we asked from her and she gave us nice, fluffy yarn.
I have to say that for a beginner, Miss Moose holds the needles very well and didn’t drop any loop.
I told her that it’s important to learn to keep her shoulders relaxed, other wise she can’t knit long time.
Yesterday when we had the knitting lesson, it was warm and sunny day. Miss Moose said: I feel hot and I need more sun glasses than wool scarf! I said, don’t worry my friend, they say in the weather forecast that winter is coming soon and when you have finished this scarf, I’m sure you can wear it.
So bravely Miss Moose continued knitting her scarf and she knit and knit and couldn’t stop because she liked it so much. I think next time she needs more challenging project … perhaps a fair isle pullover.
I’m really happy that Miss Moose learned to knit and enjoyes it! Now can have often craft along days and she can even join OUR QUILT GUILD and knit when we sew with Nero and Teje.
This was really fun day and now it’s raining! Miss Moose loves her new scarf and she’s wearing it all the time!
Thank you for reading my story! Hugs and kisses!
