I enjoy the click clack of the needles, of squishy yarn and yarn shops, of casting on something new, of the relaxing nature knitting has. I love the portable nature of it (many a soft play coffee break spent knitting a few rows) I love the fact that it's something I can sit on the sofa and do whether that's with watching a movie with K or watching M wreck the front room.
However as much as I like knitting I reservations at my knitting ability. I'm quite slow and still count myself as a novice. Even though if I actually think about I have completely a fair few things.
This week I finished off a little hoody for this impending bumps arrival. It's an "old school" knitting pattern so you knit in pieces and seam together. I used some style craft dk yarn. It's quite soft and washable - perfect for a baby! It's the denim colour and it's a lovely washed out blue colour.
It's nice having hobbies and I'm learning to be better about guilt for not doing any. As sitting and doing nothing is sometimes very important too.
