The Secret World of Knitters....

Knitting

I had my first knitting lesson today - it was fantastic and I couldn't believe how much I could actually remember. I used to knit quite well when I was younger, and once I remembered the basic stitches, muscle memory just seemed to set in and I was away laughing. I still get a little confused changing from a purl to a knit, but I'm getting there.

And boy is there a whole other crafty little world out there I didn't know about! Listening to the other ladies chat about techniques and tools (most of which I've never heard of) was really interesting and it should be a fun adventure delving further. Very much looking forward to next month!

Other knitters out there - I'm on Ravelry if you'd like to be friends with me,

  2. Did you join a knitting club? I so want to find a knitting club or knitting circle, whatever you call it, here on the Gold Coast. It would be so much fun! Maybe I should just start my own.

  4. Good luck with your knitting! I taught myself to knit using books and the internet, but there are still so many techniques to learn. Love that color of blue yarm that you're using :)

  5. I have knitted for about 4 years, and I love it. A good place for you gals to check out would be Ravelry.com. It's a knitting website (for free) filled with patterns, techniques, and groups. =]
