I have been trying to knit since I was about 10, with several half hearted attempts at learning! This time I think I have finally cracked it.....and I am not going to stop knitting just in case I forget again :-)
I have had one little project or another on the go for the last couple of months. I started off with these socks, pretty proud of these considering my earlier knitting attempts have only resulted in a rectangular scarf!
Pleased with my socks I knitted my little girl a cute pair of mouse mittens (truth be told I wish they were my size!)
Then I moved onto a shawl, love the drapey nature of this, I used a sock yarn and large needle and got a wonderful sized shawl from just one ball of yarn. I predict more shawls to come!
And this weekend I finished my first ever knitted garment! A cardigan for my youngest There are a few mistakes on the lace placket on the front, but I really don't care! It is a cardi, looks like a cardi and wears like a cardi and I honestly cant really believe I managed to knit it!
I used some of my Nannie buttons to finish it off and the new owner has already worn it, in fact she put it on the minute it came off the needles!
I have already cast on some armwarmers, to keep me warm whilst sewing, must keep knitting, I wouldn't want to forget this new skill :-)
