Hi guys. I'm new, but I've been following this blog for a while. I've come back to knitting after a 30 year break and WOW, aren't things different these days. Men's knitting groups on line, Ravelry, pictures of everything, help everywhere, not to mention circular needles! And the yarns are astonishing compared to the 70s/80s.
The trigger for my return to knitting was my first grandchild, who of course is adorable. I live in Perth, Western Australia and my son's family with Lachie the grandchild live in Christchurch, New Zealand. For those of you who dont' know, Christchurch = lots of need for woollens, Perth = not so much need for woollens. I was wondering what patterns in light weight fabrics you all think are good for warmer climes, like light weight cardigans / sweaters / tops. And what yarns might work well.
The photo is of a grumpy looking Lachie in her hat. It is a Woolly Wormhead freebie pattern, Tri-peak. Lachie is around 19 months, and she loves the hat. Mainly I suspect because she is into dressing / undressing herself and this hat has a rolled edge which she can grab onto easily with her chubby little hands.
