Click, click, click- knitting


The lack of sewing posts here is partly because I have been incredibly busy recently dealing with poorly children. I am planning a, (don’t tell anyone) VLOG on how to make a really simple and basic skirt, but this is also dependent on when Daddacool has a bit of free time and stops watching the football on the television.

In the meantime, I have been rediscovering the joy of knitting. Like a demented old lady I have been clicking the needles whilst in bed, at the Mother-in-laws and at any moment where there is no risk of impaling a small child. I’ve even been invited to a knitting club. St Albans really is a cosmopolitan place!

Knitting a childs jumper is still marginally cheaper than buying one, unless you shop in a supermarket. But its also very satisfying as they are quite small and quick to complete. I am really quite enjoying the sense of achievement as it grows centimetre by centimetre. Sometimes its the simplest, basic things that can bring you calming joy. I will keep you posted. In the meantime if you want some inspiration and some great tutorials make sure you visit and subscribe to Anjie’s Blog, she is my inspirational craft guru and deserves a much higher profile than she currently has.

    Can you believe I can not knit or crochet. Bad me. Oh and Anje is a guru. I pay homage to her quite often. Inspirational and cost effective things to do

    I have been thinking about learning to knit for a while now, do something worthwhile while sitting in front of the tv at night. Good luck with your creations
