I've been knitting :)

Wow I have started to learn to knit.  My son was staying with his Nana last night so whilst it was quiet I decided to give it a go.  Now it took a couple of goes to get started without dropping stitches, I've made a few mistakes but I don't think I'm doing too bad seen as it's my first go:

Yes i can see all the mistakes when you take a look at it.  I will probably frog it and try again but I am feeling a little more confident at learning than I have previously.  I think learning to crochet might of helped me :-)

On another note I'd like you to take a look at another website:

Each post you get to learn about wonderful patterns free & $$ that Tara has found.  The patterns she finds are fantastic and the site it well worth a look.  I have already joined and look forward to each post.


  1. Yay learning to knit! It's always fun to just keep a random affordable skein of yarn around to pick up and try out new stitches, further your skills and have fun with it! It looks great!

  2. I hardly see the drops! It looks good for the first try. Thanks for the site, too. I just followed, also.

  3. Thanks. I'm hoping to have a bit of a better go and actually make something over christmas. I've asked my mum for yarn for christmas so I'm all excited.

  4. Wow! That is amazing that you have learned to knit...I was thinking about it for a while but eh. Thanks for sharing the link to that blog. I love free patterns!

  5. what an amazing first result! Really, I am impressed.

    Love, Maaike

  6. Looks like you are doing brilliantly!
