I’ve been knittin’ and i have just finished my first batch of wooly goods. Three little hats, knitted for Baby from the softest Alpaca wool from We are Knitters . I wont lie, they’re not perfect, by any means. There are holes, small snagged stitches and large ones, but i made them, and i’m rather proud of that. My Granny taught me to knit, what feels like 100 years ago. I had completely forgotten all the imparted knowledge until my mum gave me a refresher course. She’s been my knitting guru and the first call when i’ve managed to drop a stitch or six. She’s always fixed it right up and handed it back as good as new. Saying that, Despite the errors i’ve made, i found the whole process of making these really quite relaxing. I’ve since ordered a pattern for a jumper… i know, maybe i’m running before i can properly walk but i figure it’s worth a shot to at least try. I’m quite excited to dress Baby in something i’ve made for them, whether it looks flea bitten or not.
Watch this space, i’ll have a bag full of wool and clicking needles churning out a onesie in no time.
