I have been knitting since I was a kid, with a break of a few years in the middle somewhere. I love all kinds of crafts but knitting is my favourite because I can watch TV or films at the same time… Well, as long as it’s not too complicated a pattern – I have been known to get carried away with the watching and knit several rows more than I needed! Don’t you just hate pulling knitting out?
I’ve taught the basics of knitting to young people, knitted for charity, knitted for friends and knitted just because I had nothing else better to do!
I also love reading…and writing
My favourite things to knit at the moment are toys – especially ones that look real, detailed… The kitty above is knitted from an Alan Dart pattern – it’s so cute.
