I've been knitting (yes I know!) and I'm really enjoying it :-D I've always said "I don't like knitting" and this is really a terrible lie - I just haven't been very good at it. Now I've put my mind to it (and discovered tutorials on youtube) I'm getting a bit more adventurous!
So... I started off with a scarf :-) Nice and easy huh? And yes I know it's the hottest April on record since records began, how was I supposed to know this!
Here it is before I blocked it. I hadn't learnt to knit the end of the purl rows to stop it from curling...
This is me! But I cut my head off because I was pulling a stupid face... ;-)
What this is all leading upto however is Alice's Spring Explosion Tea Cosie on her blog. Since I started reading Crochet with Raymond I've wanted to knit everything! So she has definitely insprired me and was also a huge help when I got stuck on bits! So Alice, this ones for you, ta!!
First things first, casting on and then knitting one side... I'm using a stitch holder!!! Things are getting technical!!!
And then all of a sudden (after a few k2togs)...
Tea pot bottom shot.
Now I need to make some pretty flowers and leaves for the top. Something for the Easter weekend me thinks...
Thats all for now, I might see you in a bit if I survive the chaos that will be May! Happy Easter!
