It has been a while since I started a new knitting project, or done any knitting at all really. Crochet has really been holding my attention recently. I think it may be because crochet is so much quicker than knitting and I find it easier to remember my place with a crochet project when I've had to leave it for a few days.
As I have enjoyed sewing myself a couple of items of clothing recently, it occurred to me that I have never knitted (or crocheted) an actual garment for myself. I have made lots of scarves, hats, wrist warmers etc for myself and others and a couple of cardigans for Miss M when she was younger, but not a proper garment for me.
So, I am knitting a cardigan. The pattern is this one here. It seems simple enough, being only stocking stitch and garter stitch. Hopefully the shaping and neckbands won't defeat me! Those are the parts which scare me a bit. My mum has said that she will help if I get stuck...she is a fantastic knitter and has made some gorgeous things for Miss M and for me.
So far, I am really enjoying my new knitting project and although I'm sure it will be a number of months until I have a completed cardigan to wear, I am telling myself just to enjoy the process.
What are you knitting or crocheting at the moment?
Many thanks for the get well wishes for Miss M, she is much better and is looking forward to going back to school tomorrow!
