As of February this year I’ve become a “stitch’n bitch“. My friend, and sensei, Erin taught me how and at the perfect time. I was getting so restless in February and was feeling desperate for something productive to do… keyword: productive. So, I figured I would share with all of you my new favorite hobby!
Here’s my little knitting corner. I picked up most of my needles at charity shops (I think I bought 4 of those sets of needles for £4 and that precious little caddy for it all for £0.50!).
Now, it was pretty full when I took the picture, but since then (1 week ago) I’ve bought 5 more skeins of wool… yeah, I’m addicted.
So here are some of my creations! A ribbed snood (snood = eternity scarf/cowl).
A basketweave scarf.
A warm slouchy hat.
And one of my ongoing projects is my blanket! I’m expecting this to take me a year or so because it’s my secondary project and I want it to be a large blanket I can wrap around myself. So, my plan is to knit a bunch of different patches, made up of as many different patterns as possible, and then sew them all together… like a quilt!
My current primary project is this “burberry-ish” cowl by The Garter Girl.
