I have taken up knitting again! I say "again" because I've been knitting this scarf (I'm ashamed to say) for about 3 years! I get into it and then forget all about it...
Anyway, the idea is that I will spend the coming cold, winter evenings curled up on the sofa knitting a blanket for my new baby. But before I buy the wool and commit myself I want to be sure I will actually finish the thing! So I'm going to complete (and practice on) my lovely stripey scarf... and then see if it's good enough to wear! Knitting is surprisingly therapeutic and quite relaxing even. Something you can do sat in front of the telly. :)
I'd been thinking about getting back into knitting (and crochet... a forgotten skill I once had!) for some time. Then I got a spark of inspiration from this lovely etsy shop 'Kove Handmade'.
I just love her wraps and neck warmers and think her choice of colours are gorgeous, especially for this time of year, they look so cosy and comfortable.
Also... please don't forget my 2011 art calendars are ready and waiting to be purchased... :)
