It is traditional in Czech republic (my home), but traditional patterns are more compicated and more beautifull then my eggs.

I wonder if I didn´t something wrong: I wanted to teach my nephew (six years old, she will be next owner of this pullover) something about knitting and we use this project. And she made about five or seven stitches herself without my help. Is not it problem? Didn´t I broke rules? I am afraid that I will be disqualified!

My project for Olympic knitting - modular knitting
Originally uploaded by imichalova1.
I hate to sew together a lot of smal pieces.
Yesterday I had nearly 14 squares, but today I feel tired. I believe I manager, but I have to work hard.
Probably I ought to take day of my work for this project. I don´t think my boss would like it. J

I am joined!
They add me to the list of olympic knitters. You can find me on their list. Yarn for my olympic project is ready, today I bought some pink, because I was afraid, if I have enough.
Today I have to go on with my son´s scarf, it will need about three or four hours of knitting and it must be finished Sunday. It will be dark blue, close to black. I will not take pictures, because it is too dark. I promised some socks to him, but I gave up to knit them and we bought them.
It is funny to go to yarn shop with boy of sixteen. He is familiar with knitting from his childhood, because I knitted very much, when I was at home with children. He (and his younger brother) grouw up in my pullovers and other things, but in recent years hand knitting is not very popular between my boys. He looked at me and then he show me yarn that he want for socks. And then about pullover and if I can knit one for him. I was really surprised.

Interesting idea, I was thinking if to participate or not and suddenly I find myself trying a new kniting technique for the project. So decision was made, I am going to take my chalenge. I want to knit pullover for my sister´s daughter. She is six, she is very beautiful and I want to make something nice for her. Rules say that the project must be finished in 16 days, I believe I can do this. And after the Knitting Olympic I can make similar pullover in blue and green, because my sister has a son two :-)

Probably I have to introduce myself. I am young wife (I believe that 40 years woman is young), born, educated and living in Czech Republic in the heart of Europe. My family consist of two sons, sixteen and fourteen years, and my boyfriend.
And mother, father, sister and her children, brother. We all live in one town.
My hobbies: anything connected with textile. I tried nearly all textile techniques, my favousit is knitting, patchwork-quilting and tie-dye. I studied on textile collage but now I work in another field. I have website with my things and ideas and yahoogroup connected with it.
I love taking pictures wiht my digital camera, some of them you can see on my another blog rupr.blogspot.com. I wanted some interesting wallpapers for my comp and found a lot of girl, celebrities, what I really don´t want to look at. Evidently they are made by men for men. So I prepared my own wallpapers and they will womanish. Feel free to come and download any picture you like.
Oh, I forgot nearly: I have even blog og blogs - Best of textile blog, where I collect some interesting posts from other people blogs.
