Honestly, even though I have been sewing, and also now knitting, its been taking me some time to settle into a new life in Bristol. Work has been really hard, and I've just struggled to find the energy and motivation to sit at my computer in my free time to write up blog posts.
I'd like to get gat back into blogging again, so here's a quick recap of what you've missed the past few months:
After learning to knit just before Christmas, I have been a knitting nut of late. People, how has it taken me 30 years of life to discover knitting??!!!
In October I booked onto a 6 week knitting class, and I loved every minute of it. The second I picked up some knitting needles something "clicked", and I'm not just talking about the needles here! That's not to say I'm a natural talent, I've completed afew projects and my stitches are a bit uneven, I can't sew things up very neatly, and my casting on is very loose, but I care not, I'm already addicted.
So here are the first few things I've made, some ribbed armwarmers:
I also bought The Gentle Art of Knitting by Jane Brocket and have just finished the slouchy hat:
I have also just finished the honey cowl by Madeline Tosh. Pics to come soon.
