New stuff

I finally completed my Drops cardigan! With a little help from my mom, who did the crocheted edges (thank you !) I think it turned out very well and I love to wear my first made garnment. Well the first piece of clothing I made for myself.

Here it is, and yes, you can also see my glasses, smart huh?

Next to my knitting projects I've also done some painting. I made two new paintings. One for my grandfather who is in a rehabilitationclinic and another one just for fun. I realy like to paint these days. Normally I only did pencil drawings, but I rediscovered the arts of painting a while ago and now I like it very much.

This is the one I made for my grandfather. It's his birthtown.

And here is a fox I made.

Now I have to knit a hat for India, since I posted a blog about it. After that I think I'll start on a pullover for myself.

Knit a hat for India

This week I saw a flyer from "Save the Children," wich is a international child rights organisation. They've got a project that's called "Project India." Save the Children started a new campaign, to stop child mortality in India. You have to knit a hat for new-born children, to stop them from freezing to death. You can download a pattern for a hat here: (in Dutch!) In many knittingshops you can get 25% discount on Phildar yarn.
If you're done, you can send your hat (up to February 27) to:

Save the Children
‘Brei een muts’
Postbus 95925
2509 CX Den Haag

So grab your knitting needles and start knitting!
