If you know me personally, you’ll know that I get bored of stuff and like to try new stuff all the time. And now that cross stitching, sewing and crochet are mastered to a certain degree, I decided to introduce knitting in my life.

    Hi Maria, this is a beautiful summer top. Easy to wear. It looks good on you , so is the colour. I love knitting and i am so in to it right now. But as you say , knitting takes time and for me it’s only when i watch TV .in the evening.

      Thank you very much Maria :)
      Yeah, I’ll try my hands on a sweater probably during the Christmas/New year vacation…

    Beautiful top! Reminds me of one I saw on ModCloth last year and adored but couldn’t afford. Maybe it’s time to get serious about knitting!

      Thank you very much :)
      Maybe? It’s not difficult to learn, and you get quite a bit done in front of your fave TV shows ;)

    Nice! How long did it take you to make this?? I don’t knit but I have thought about it. However the amount of time I think it will take me before I have something wearable isn’t really motivating haha

      Thanks! Well yeah, it’s not like a sewing project that can be done in a couple/few days. It’s hard to say exactly how long as I normally don’t solely work on knitting/crochet or anything else that takes time, they’re normally backup projects for TV-watching, travelling, etc…
      I think it took me about a month, but should be possible to do in a couple of weeks if you do only that. And of course the thicker the yarn the faster result ;)

    Oh i’m jealous of you! Sewing, cross stitch and crochet? And now knitting? I only know basic sewing…This is a great blouse Maria and I immagine that is super comfy for summer…Well done!

      Thank you very much! Yeah, I tend to get bored of doing the same thing, hence all the different crafts…and they’re not really difficult, it’s just to try ;)
