When I was in Cornwall a few weeks ago I asked my boyfriend’s mum to teach me how to knit. I’ve wanted to learn for a while now but never took the time to learn. I have a gorgeous winter hat knitted by my friend Justin shown here. His creations have propelled me to want to make some of my own. He has a way outdated blog but you can check out some of the things he’s made there.
So one evening David’s mum taught me how to knit and even though I caught on relatively quickly it was a bit frustrating starting out. It just felt really awkward holding the needles. This is what I produced:
I’m trying to finish it in a month, not sure if that is too ambitious. However knitting it is highly addictive as I’ve been warned, so I think I can.
