Today I want to tell you about one of my hobbies: knitting.
My mother taught me how to knit as a child, and I absolutely love it! It´s really relaxing and with a little practice you can make really cute garments, like the jersey that I´m showing you in the pictures. My mother made it, and with this warm weather, I always wear it, because it´s a cotton knit which is very cool and comfortable.
I always buy my wools at We Are Knitters. They have ideal colors of fantastic quality and the wooden needles are excellent for knitting.
As I have mentioned before, for the summer season they have some cotton balls perfect for summer garments. We Are Knitters is excellent at changing their wools according to the seasons which is so clever.
Now that the summer is son approaching and I’m planning to go to the countryside and the beach, I have more free time and take this opportunity to knit. It’s wonderful, I really want to go to my house at Formentera and knit a jersey on the terrace by the pool for my godson Manolito!
My sister and cousins also knit at home, so we use the evenings to catch up and have some snacks while we knit a scarf or something.
On the website of “We are Knniters” you can find tutorials to learn how to knit. I really recommend you to try it, and when you’ve mastered the basics, there are several more tutorials for more intricate knits.
In the pictures I’m with my friends. I’m wearing a sweatshirt top, from Virginie Castawey for Cool the Sack, some Lee Jeans and a Stradivarius necklace. The needles storage bag is a gift that my dear friend Jennifer who made it for me for my birthday, which is so useful!
I hope you´ll feel encouraged to knit, it’s really fun, and once you see your progress on the finished garments, you’ll get hooked!
