Knitting For The Boyfriend!!

ijhg

Few days ago, I told S. I wanted to knit a blanket (I was all pumped from Lynne Knowlton’s post here) and he went like “Oh nice, why don’t you make it for me? It’s starting to freeze here! ” Yay! If there was something that could make me start right away, it sure was the idea of making something to keep my boy warm!!

I bought  black yarns and learned how to start off with this video. After learning how to cast, I had some problems going ahead. For 3-4 hours, I thought knitting just wasn’t my thing, but there’s a special kind of stubborness that takes over me when I have to do something for somebody I love!! Fortunately, mom remembered something, and she explained to me what was I doing wrong 😀

Now I am going quite fast, and the second yarn is almost gone!! I find it very relaxing,and it also makes me feel like I’m keeping alive an important type of craft..too naive of mine?

I started with black but I don’t want it to be ALL black…and it should be a very manly blanket indeed!! I was thinking about few bold color vertical stripes…fluo green maybe? Ideas?

Ciao guys!
