Natural Born Knitter!

This post is all about the beautiful practice that is knitting.

Firstly, some photos of the natural born knitter that is my boyfriend, Matt. He asked me to teach him because it mystified him how “banging two needles together” produced lovely things. I was very impressed how quickly he picked it up. 30 stitches and 7 rows later and he knows how to cast on and is happily knitting!

Secondly, I was asked today how easy it was to knit with ribbon. It turns out that it wasn’t as hard as I’d thought. Although the ribbon has no give in it like wool does, it slides quite well. Hmmm what to knit with next…

Thirdly, there are still spaces left on the Learn to Knit and Crochet workshop run by Buttons & Pearls. So if you like the idea of spending three heavenly hours learning how to knit and crochet surrounded by like minded people (not to mention lashings of tea and cake!) then book your place now!
