I still remember Sr. Mary standing on a chair with her back to us showing us how to knit in 1st class. I reckon primary school was the last time I knitted until I was pregnant the first time. Again, limited with my pelvis for the last two months I started knitting for the new baby to keep myself busy, and knitting for babies is nice and fast.
- The end results – Unlike flower arranging you end up with some lovely, hopefully wearable or usable items. They can also make for fabulous gifts.
- The patterns – there are endless free patterns online, check out Ravelry.
- The supplies – Once more I found myself addicted to buying wool and where to store it all…
- The noise – HA, the click click of the needles drives my husband mad when watching TV. Hence, I tried my hand at crochet on this pregnancy. But I get very frustrated with crochet.
- The time – I’m not that fast at knitting and definitely not at crochet, so I’ve a hat that I started over a year ago not yet half completed and only one glove for Missy.
I enjoy knitting and love when Missy can wear something I made but find myself too tired in the evenings to pick it up and start reading patterns and counting. If I could get around to knitting more maybe I’d be faster and would then pick up the needles more often. So, watch this space…..maybe.
