I don't remember exactly when I started knitting, but it has been more years than I want to admit to. I've been knitting so long that I just frogged a sweater I started in 1977. I guess you could say I took a really long knitting break, about 30 years, to be exact.
Then I retired and moved away from
the friends I'd made throughout my career. In an effort to make new
friends, and because everywhere I went, people were talking about
knitting and especially knitting socks. I'd never tackled socks, but I
was intrigued and decided the best way to kill two birds with that one
stone, was to take a class. I was hooked.
I started knitting
socks, then graduated to hats too. I love knitting hats. They are quick
to finish and people love them. They are also a good take along project
and easy to donate to charity.
Margeau Soboti has written an
excellent instruction manual/book. She has included some great patterns
that I know my family will love and that I will enjoying knitting.
Chevron is definitely my favorite of the collection, but there are
several patterns for every taste. Margeau Chapeau is a knitting book for
all skill levels.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
