The trials & tribulations of a novice knitter


I can safely say that knitting has never been on my bucket list of things to do before I die..................That was until we got this beautiful new wool in at work.

To say that I am not one of lifes natural knitters would not be an understatement. When I bought the wool 2 weeks before Christmas I had to get someone at work to cast me on the 12 stitches needed, within 2 hours I had managed to drop a stitch & in frustration pulled the whole lot off the needles, It then took me a further 3 hours with the help of this video to get the requisite 12 stitches back on the needle.

Casting on

With all of the prep for Christmas & four cats I hadn't got very far with my pom pom scarf, so I took it away at new year & got nearly 30" knitted, I have also got quite proficient at picking up dropped stitches & re-casting on as when Abi saw my wool she wanted to try knitting her own scarf, the only hitch being that she is a leftie. But fortunately she is also ambidextorous & I have manged to show her right handed, tonight she has managed about 10 rows & only twice gained stitches.

The irony of this DIY accessory is I chose blue as I fancied a new coat in either blue or turquoise I had seen two I liked one formal & the other casual, but in the sales on Friday I bought two beautiful new jackets that i had looked at before Christmas & neither of them is blue! Oh well I guess I could make a second scarf, there are so many beautiful colours.

Oooh that wool is scrummy! Though I had to laugh at your knitting frustrations! My granny taught me to knit with the rhyme:
in through the bunny hole, round the big tree, back through the bunny hole, and off pops she.
Try it, you'll be saying it to yourself every stitch!
Good luck with casting off!

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
