I have always wanted to knit but never had the patience. It must feel amazing to be able to whip up a jumper or a pair of socks. I have tried to crack this wooly nut for a while. I honestly was making James a scarf for two years and it never got any longer, until I switched to crochet and I knocked out in a month.
After visiting my mother-in-law over Christmas, and seeing her switch from crochet to knitting, I thought it was time to try again. A bookmark seemed like a nice and easy way to get into it, and it was something I’d never made before. Well, this bloody thing took me 3 hours, is all sorts of wonky, and has a few extra random stitches for some reason, but I begrudgingly did it!
It’s interesting as part of the reason I’m trying all these new things is to try and discover new hobbies and interests, things I’d like to continue doing. I can confidently say I will not be pursuing knitting again.
