Earlier on in the year I decided I wanted to do something different, so I decided to learn how to knit. I had learnt many years ago when i was very young through my grandmother. She started of teaching the basic and I started off knitting a scarf. I lived in another country back then, and my grandmother had come on one of her visits to see us. But when she left she had never taught my sisters and I how to cast off. So you can imagine me continuously knittiing this very long scarf that never really ended - i wish i had a picture lol! After a while I'd gotten bored and stopped knitting..that unfinished scarf went in the bin lol!
So here i am now, a couple of decades later and I decided I wanted to learn again. So I went on this knitting workshop in London and learnt the basics - how to knit, purl, and cast off! After that course I began wondering what i could make, besides a scarf and I signed up and started looking for patterns off Raverly. I didn't really find anything on there but I did pick up this book which i saw on Amazon which was really good, called Knitty Gritty - Knitting for the Absolute Beginner.
I read reviews off Amazon and after buying it i was amazed at how easy Aneeta Patel had made everything and i decided on my first pattern: the adorable baby booties: Here they are:
Here is bootie no 1 without being sewn up
Booties all done!!
Since knitting the booties I've been filled with an extra boost of confidence. Its a nice feeling you get when you actually accomplish something isn't it.
Well i think i've over blogged really. So until next time :) See ya!
