I have been wanting to try my hand at knitting for some time now. In fact I have owned the Rowan book for about two years. A lack of confidence and the fact that the balls of wool were £6.50 each (!) had made me reluctant to buy the wool and have a go. But I bit the bullet and bought the two balls of wool needed and huge 20mm knitting needles.
The plan is for me to knit a collar /capelt type thing. Well, that's the plan anyway. I have made a start and found that the needles are very large and quite unwieldy, but I am perservering. If for no other reason that the wool was so expensive!
I did have a photo of the book and the wool etc all ready to go, but Blogger is playing up and won't let me upload them - sorry! I'll try another day.
The only photo it will let me upload is that of some books I bought on my charity shop trawls. Fluffy chick lit for 30p each. And they are sitting on a polka dot scarf that I couldn't resist.
No doubt I will be back with my knitting saga and asking for some help along the way! Wish me luck ............
