Can I learn to knit? asked my Miss O. Well, maybe we can do that together. I replied.
I give you the fruits of our efforts.
We have been using A Ladybird Book about Knitting, which was in the box set I found a couple of months ago.
We are only up to the garter stitch, deciding to become masters of this before moving on. I am a fan of the texture of this stitch, so am happy with the decision.
Miss O has opted to make a scarf of a multicoloured nature.
I am working on a patchwork, probably knee throw. I have now used all my one ball of grey wool I purchased for practise. I am very proud of my pile of squares. My skills will never reach the heights of this novice knitter. I am in awe of her ability. However, I did achieve the incredible skill of watching a bit of television whilst knitting - true granny style!
The challenge for me will be pattern reading. To be completely honest, it looks like a maths problem to me. I am hopelessly BAD at maths. I'm hoping that my plan to take this in small steps and learn alongside my 6 year old will stand me in good stead.
With this post I am joining in Kootoyoo found through the lovely m.e.
Happy Thursday to you all!
