I have finally learned how to knit (this has been on the list for so long, I won’t even tell you). I’m very much enjoying it, and don’t feel spiessig in the slightest.
My first project was something easy to get me going: a little scarf for Jakob. After my mum gave me a couple of pointers on technique, that was easy and fun.
The second thing I wanted to do was knit a cap for a newborn. This got me going in the first place: Knitting a cap for a newborn in a developing country, where woolen caps can actually safe children’s lives. Here it is:
This will go to Save the Children in Berlin, who started the campaign. Also in the envelope? Good wishes for mother and child and a letter to the German chancellor, asking her to increase the budgets of developmental help and conflict management programmes.
Using my voice is SO satisfying.
P.S.: By the bye, this was not part of the Portfolio Project. I still haven’t figured out what I’ll do, and I definitely won’t start before the new year’s here…
