A Bit of Knitting
I used to knit a lot and then I stopped completely for a few years, busy doing other crafts for work related projects. When my little grandson was born nearly three years ago I bought some wool and new bamboo needles and began making him a stripy hat and jumper from a lovely Debbie Bliss pattern. And that's when I remembered how much I loved knitting! How relaxing, you could just pick it up and put it down, do a few rows here and there, never be bored waiting around somewhere because you could just whip out the knitting and do a bit. Now I usually have something on the needles, and at the moment it's a cardigan in Rowan Felted Tweed, one of my favourite yarns - so cosy, and lovely soft colours and textures.
