Knitting!!

I haven't knitted since primary school age and have to admit that I didn't enjoy it back then and preferred to do crochet. I have recently found a few patterns that are knitted and have felt the need to have a go at knitting once again. So today after purchasing some needles I had a go. I am REALLY surprised that I remembered to cast on and knit plain and purl! It's only been 30 plus years too! Lol!


I hope all you skilled knitters out there arn't laughing at my efforts! Lol! I am really enjoying it so far.



Most of my time has been spent making little clothes. This is a little crochet cardi that I made up for my (our) Blythe girls



And then of course I had to make 3 in different colours.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Very cute!!! I do love me a bit of knitting, though I tend to make smaller items, like those dolls cardies or soft toys rather than big people-sized jumpers!!! The only people-sized jumper I've ever been able to finish, was one little one for my daughter, not long after she was born ... and she was only 6'3" a birth!! Lol! ... Living your little cardies ... And all the clothes you ate making for these adorable dolls!! ... Oh, and the stitcheries in the backgrounds are gorgeous too!!!
