Knitting is the perfect antidote for snowy weather - the cold weather has done wonders for my knitting!
This week I have started and nearly finished several knitting projects. I say nearly because I am missing what is seemingly a vital piece of knitting kit - a darning needle. I am continuing my way through knittygritty and this is what I have accomplished so far;
Chunky Scarf (pattern - knittygritty; wool - Robin, Chunky)
My first finished project!!!! This was super easy (as you might expect from a scarf) but I am so proud - I finished it and no holes! Whoop whoop.

Knit hats (pattern - knittygritty; wool - King Cole comfort chunky)
I loved making this as it was the first time I had followed a pattern and used 1x1 rib stitch! I also learnt how to decrease stitches. The wool is really luxurious and lovely to knit. I picked up the wool from Wibbling Wools in Bury St Edmunds from a bargain bin, I bought 2 balls but tempted to go back and see if there is any left. This is the first project where I realised I needed a darning needle, so it is not quite finished. This does not stop me from putting it on my head - sad I know.
Booties (Pattern - knittygritty; wool -Cygnet DK)
Roberty suggested I make these and I am glad he did. I loved seeing them take shape and again practised my decreasing skills. I am very tempted to make adult ones!
On another note, I was meant to have a job interview this week but it was postponed due to the weather - I'll keep you posted!
Until next time knitters...
