It is my knit-versary!

I can’t believe that I have been knitting for a year today!
Thanks to Meg for inspiring, enabling, encouraging me to give it a go. Without your kindness, generosity and patience it would not have been possible.

Thanks to Marty for understanding my need to have a hobby, encouraging me every step of the way, putting up with me playing youtube clips over and over again and for not getting openly frustrated with my special kind of crazy.

Thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement along the way.

As crazy and ‘old Nanna’ as it sounds I certainly enjoy my hobby. This is what my year of knitting looks like.

My Hoodie (Coastal Hoodie) This one has been EPIC but is going to be a beautiful hoodie when it is finally finished. Halfway through the button band and still have the long sleeves to go.

Sadly I don’t get much time to knit so it takes quite a while to get through each project. I look forward to many more.

Garden City Scarf

It took me a fair while to knit this and I had a few challenges along the way. This is my third knitting project so I am pretty proud. It was a fun knit which taught me some pretty big knitting musts. It is a Garden City Scarf which you can read more about here.

I made it with a hand dyed gorgeous Sparkle DK called “Mother of Pearl” yarn which I purchased from Never Ending Obsessions.
