Knitting


I've been knitting on and off for about 17 years. The first thing I made was a green cardigan and it was a total disaster and ended up in the bin! In the last few years I've come back to knitting and find it the best way to relax. Now that I get home and it's getting dark and I don't have time to be in the garden, knitting has become my new passion!

I have several projects on the go. 1. I get bored with knitting with the same wool 2. I find a more interesting wool 3. I find another pattern/project. So last night I was finishing off a wide ladies scarf in raspberry knitted in seed stich (very apt!) and Jack asked when I was going to knit him a scarf for sixth form. Big mistake as it meant I had to go to Rochester to the wool shop at lunchtime. Now I know I won't finish the ladies scarf as now I have a mission to knit with some new wool! So watch this space for the finished pieces. In the meantime here is the seed stitch scarf (work in progress!)
