Uh. I knit. Yes. I knit (a not-so hidden skill of mine). I started from a young age and my primary school friends at the time thought I was an old granny knitting stuff... stereotypical moment. ¬,¬" I only started learning because MummyGeek was teaching Mr Stingy at the time and being a want to know it all at the time I wanted to do what Mr Stingy was doing. Sibling rivalry!!
I started knitting a bright yellow scarf. It was horrible as I increased the stitches instead of making a neat grid. :( But as time passed I became better at it although I did become frustrated at times because all I could do was make scarves and I even threw away my first ever knitting book - I regret that. So I bought another book called Knitty Gritty by Aneeta Patel many years ago - it was colourful compared to all the knitting books I went through. Need to get her next book!!
First thing I made were these baby mittens. It had taken me five attempts to remember how to knit one purl one. How hard is that? Not hard, I just needed to remember to put the string at the front/back. ¬,¬ sigh. Geeks get things wrong too.
|My first amigurumi|
This has gotten me back into my knitting
unfortunately. So watch out in the near future for more baby knit stuff or amigurumi... then eventually children and eventually adult stuff (oh deary me).
p.s. Miss Pinky knits too - I taught her ^_^
