A knitted house

By spotogspindel | November 13, 2014


Looking for one thing, often leads me to find something completely different. Today I found a knitted house I made about 25 years ago, while still a student. It´s about 20×30 cm. It was an interesting experiment, changing all the colors, going back and forth. I soon discovered that it would be easier to knit both ways (both from left to right and from right to left on the front), not having to purl on the back as well as keeping track of all the threads and the pattern. I think the original idea was to make it the front of a baby-sweather. I found the beginning of a tiny arm in another bag. But knowing I would never finish it, at least I made the front into a little wall-hanging. Oh well.
