My first work is complete!

I am very proud to announse that my "first piece of art" is finished! It is a cushion knitted with wool, so it`s warm and nice to sit on. My dad has his 65th birthday this weekend and I`m sure he will be happy for it:) It`s a practical item to have when you want to sit outside and keep warm.

Welcome to our group.
I am sure your father is going to love the cushion.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Welcome to our merry band of knitters. The cushion sounds like a very thoughtful gift and I am certain your dad will bless you every time he sits on it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Very right Mill, tried remebering my first kiss but couldn't. Still I do well remember the red scarf I made for my hubby. :)

LOL...It's probably because my first kiss was most likely with a girl...(no offense to our ladies)

None taken.
