I’ve suddenly become interested in knitting. It happens once in a while! Usually when it’s cold!
I had all this wool hanging around, found a pattern I liked and hey presto.
Talking to my sis the other day I groaned that my wrists were hurting a bit after knitting so much, and complained I couldn’t knit fast enough, she suggested I tried Continental knitting which is supposed to be less strain on the wrists, so I’ve been investigating via utube.
Sis also suggested other methods of knitting which are meant to be quicker than English knitting - Lever, Russian and Portuguese, but they seem a little awkward to me - not that I won't try again some other time.
Anyway, I've spent a fair amount of time this week trying them out and I think I will probably be using Continental Knit in future. And here is a link to a 5 minute Continental knit tutorial which I found quite easy to follow.
Go on, you know you want to ...... have a little go!
Mind you, I do hope I have enough wool or I will have to rip it back - again!
The handy thing about blogging is that it makes it easy to keep track of when the knitting reaches a certain length.
Well I'll be back tomorrow joining Jo's Secret Stitching Sweetheart bloghop.
