Today my lovely mum Sandy taught me how to knit Noah a vest….
Along the course of the 7 hours of knitting today, I added my own new stitch to the knitting world…the back-to-front, around-the-wrong way stitch!
Many years ago my grandmother Lily taught me how to knit on her front verandah while I was staying with her on holidays. I was given some beautiful knitting needles at Colour conference in Sydney and I was inspired to start knitting. Well – I have been clickety clacking day and night the last few days and I have made a mammoth red scarf! It was inspired by the main character in the French film Hunting and Gathering who wears the most amazing red scarf most of the movie! Now I have my very own! It has been keeping me warm in early in the morning as I have been knitting!
