30 Day of Knitting
What was your first finished project?
My first project was the Chocolate Gateau Slice!
It seemed to take forever, my knitting was still slow & there were a few dropped stitches by the end, but I made it! It now takes pride of place on my cake stand in my room.
What is currently on your needles?
At the moment there's a little bat on my 4mm's and a heart on my 3.25mm's... will hopefully both be finished off tomorrow! Eeeeek. I only tend to have one or two projects on my needles
at a time, otherwise I'll never get them finished! I get very easily side-tracked!
Do you have any other WIPs (works in progress)?
Well I started two hamsters, a basic one & a skeleton one... they fustraited me though, so they ended up in little zip-lock bags in my knitting basket! I only tend to take on projects that take a few days. Generally, the easier the better!
How did you learn to knit?
I was taught to knit about 2 or 3 years ago by my great great Auntie. My Aunties are very thrifty ladies & I loved their outlook. They keep those forgotten crafts alive!
|Auntie Eddie & Auntie Dot|
Auntie Eddie was a dab hand with knitting needles & Auntie Dot with sewing needles. So week upon week for about 2 months Auntie Eddie taught me to knit. She was highly amused at just how terrible I was and how long it took me to pick up, but we did it! She would pick up my dropped stitches for me and taught me the different stitches... & that's when I fell in love with knitting!
