Knit one, Purl one.....

Hello lovely people,

Ask any of my family and they will tell you that I am hopeless at knitting.  I have tried over the years and been taught by various people but never quite got the hang of it.........until now!

I have been learning to knit over the past month or so with another teacher and teaching assistant.  So far I have learned to cast on/off, purl, knit, add colours, decrease and I'm still learning to increase :S

So I started off by knitting something really easy, which only used the knit stitch........sandwiches!

I think they are great and I am really proud of myself!  Then I made a wee yellow bunny for Easter.

Now I am making myself a lovely bow scarf.  I got the pattern from Etsy but have found that the number of stitches needed to be doubled to keep its shape.  I will post a picture when it is finished.

So far I am really enjoying knitting and we are maybe going to be teaching it to some of the children next year.  So I will need to practice all summer!
