I have been knitting…..yes, really.

9 Apr

So I ended up going to a few learn to knit classes, and I must say I don’t know how people find this relaxing, enjoyable, addictive. For me it is just awkward, stressful and the whole time I am doing it I am thinking how I just can’t wait to get back to my current crochet WIP.

Any way I wanted to share the few things I have made.

This is my sampler piece that I made during the first lesson. There is garter, stocking, rib and moss stitched in this rather messy little number.

This is the start of a diagonal scarf, so boring so I gave up on this one.

This is the gorgeous piece of herringbone stitch I created for the vest I am making (the whole reason I learnt to knit)

And last of all this is hoping to become a scarf one day.

During my last class I bought a ball of Noro yarn and started on this, it uses a twisted drop stitch. I like this stitch, it reminds me of crochet, however it is quite a loose stitch so it has been pretty easy to drop stitches. This aside I am enjoying watching the colours of the Noro emerge and it makes me excited to knit with this .

I can’t see knitting becoming a passion of mine, but it has been a good skill to learn.
