    I made 'cupcakes'! (Plus all the wooden stuff in the background.)

    Those are so cool! Are they just for decoration? Are they hollow?

    There's a small hollow space inside them. It's not very big, but they'll easily hold a few rings, earrings, or even a small bracelet.

    How long did it take you to make this ?

    Rumour has it she started it when she was 1 year old.

    A few weeks off and on. It's pretty repetitive once you get going, so knits up fast.

    You are very talented ,

    Thanks. :)

    It's what keeps me sane, oddly. Pity it doesn't burn a lot of calories. :D

    I don't have a lot of the sweaters I knitted for myself anymore. Most ended up being too big and I donated them to the local church charity. The only one left is this rather plain but extremely warm one:

    It's currently about 3 sizes too large for me, but it's the first sweater I ever finished and I can't seem to part from it. Emotional sop that I am. :wink: I still love wrapping myself in it on cold winter days. That last layer of a gazillion layers.

    I have several other projects I'm working on, but none are finished. I can't stand working with wool in the summer so knitting season only started again a couple of months ago. I should have a few more things to show in a couple of weeks. :smile:

    I saw in a different thread that you don't sell your work ( I think?) but if you did I'd be a buyer. These are so awesome! You're very talented!

    It's a pattern on Knitty, if you really want it. Super easy so long as you have stitch markers to help you keep track. :)

    I am fully equipped in this regard. I just can't follow knitting instructions in English to save my life. Learned with instructions all in German. I'm pretty good at recreating patterns even if I don't have the instructions. :wink:

    That is really good !

    Do you make money off of them if not you should !

    Thanks! And no, a lot of people don't want to pay the prices most of us would have to charge for the work that goes into these. I mostly do it for relaxation and to make things for people I care about.

    I've considered writing down patterns and selling the instructions to those, though. That's where most of the money is, lol.

    Do you make up your own patterns as well?

    Sometimes. I like to follow other patterns (because there are some AMAZING patterns out there), but I also like to make charts for my own. Specifically with intarsia or double stranded knitting. Tedious, but somehow satisfying. :)

    I admire your skills both at illustration and knitting...I wonder what other talents you may have!!

    I love that multi coloured sweater, and the table cloth is beautiful.

    I like knitted things that are "holey" I think they are really pretty. All my favourite sweaters are "holey".
