OMI the austrian Grandma

Written by , Posted in Omi




I became a Omi beginning of December last year and it was such a special moment in my life.

To see my daughter holding her new born baby in her hands is such a emotional strong moment!!

Was it not yesterday my daughter was still my baby?

And thats how a new chapter of my life started.

I learned from my mother how to knit and so I decided to do for my little Ava her first


Knitting  also provided a newfound sense of  creativity. Immersed in brilliant colors, textures,

and images of beautiful baby clothes I found a new way of meditation.

Nothing more easy and funny than  to knit for a new born.

Here my first work





I used wool from Bergere de France

Teddy Argent

and the bonnet and sleepers are made from

LANG Yarns

Merino 150



My  SON NOGUERA Clutch is the best place to storage all my accessories .
