K is for Knitting adventure
(a ufo from my mother) and a whole community on Ravelry cheered me on because we were having a knit-a-long making socks. I made a couple of shawls, which unfortunately were quite curly even with blocking but otherwise they were good.
And then I started making hats for Christmas, I made six hats and three washing cloths. I felt I had a good grip on hats and started on scarfs, I have now made two scarfs in garter stitch and am having so much fun. It was interesting to see the difference a bigger needle made.
But my biggest challenge, my all time knitting adventure has been on hold for a while (because I have no idea of where I am in the pattern after I put it down to concentrate on my wedding dress), it is a jacket! I adore the pattern, another friend of mine made me one moons ago but it is too small so I grudginly gave it away and now I SO want to finish my jacket. Then it is onwards and upwards on my continuing knitting adventure! I want to become an OK knitter, I want to be able to make dresses, baby rompers because there is nothing cuter, scarfs with lace and not just accidental holes, I want to learn cables and make owls and bunnies with little puffy tails.
I want to be able to knit just as naturally as I do crochet. I want to be able to wing it and tweek patterns.
So please join me in my knitting adventure, it has only just begun.
