Catching up…

Righty ho – here goes =]

I started knitting properly about 18 months ago at the request of my man S. He wanted a jumper, so wanting to be helpful I said ok…. it took forever to do as I found it so boring, just plain stockinette stitch for hours and hours, but then seeing it finished, something grabbed me and BOOM!!! obsession!.

I had been crocheting little bits and pieces for a while, but always found the idea of 2 sticks much scarier than my little hook, which is probably why I didn’t try sooner. I still love to crochet, but have not yet mastered the fancy stitches and am seeming to find  fancy knitting rather simple.

What have I been up to then? Ravelry. that says everything… I am like a child in a sweet shop. Almost everything I have knitted in the last 6 months has come off there. My latest obsession knitting wise? HEXIPUFFS! but more of that later….

I have made 3 cowls,

Cowl #2
cowl #3

3 pairs of gloves (only 1 has pics though),

cosy & sparkly mitts

oh and  how could i forget the lovely kindle case that was too short (that was a valuable lesson – check size before casting off!!!)
