Knitting is one of those things I’ve always wanted to be able to do. I’ve always wanted to be able sit there and knit away, but despite my Nanny’s attempts to teach me as a kid, I never quite took to it. Fast forward to present day I decided to teach myself using utube. God bless the internet. Nothing beats watching tutorials in the living room; where no one can see you getting it wrong.
It was pretty easy to learn the basics; including casting on and off and doing a basic stitch. The biggest challenge to learning? The dog took I likening to the wool!
And did his best to sit on my lap while I knitted!
I would definitely need some new needles and some better quality wool if I was to make anything useful. But it was a good start!
It was quite good to sit there knitting away through a lazy Sunday while we watched a box set and drank TV.
What to learn next?
