My friends and avid fans, there is something about me which you may have been hitherto (what a word) unaware. I am engaged in a quest.
And not just any quest.
This is a quest for… Granny Points™.
Others among you may strive for “wife points”, but this is a far more serious endeavour.
Thus far, I have tried to fulfil this task by culinary means, but I think the time has come for a more concerted effort to be made, and therefore, I present to you this post of:
Knitting Banter #1
Apparently, blogging about baking all the time is not Jonathan-Campbell-friendly, and I should blog about other things from time to time. So, ever-compliant being that I am, I present a quick post about knitting, which I’m sure will be much more to his taste 😉
Items which I have recently knitted:
A lacy eyelet slouchy hat (I’m not much of a hat gal, but the lacyness was an interesting project, and I suppose it’s a good thing to have at one’s disposal – if you’re interested in the pattern, I added 4 stitches and knitted for 6 inches before starting to decrease, to make up for the fact that I was doing it on 5mm and 7mm needles rather than 5mm and 8mm as specified)
Fingerless mittens (a bit of a necessity in an old house such as that of my family, which doesn’t take kindly to heating up in summer or in winter)
And the other thing which I have knitted since the end of exams: a using-up-wool, trying-out-seamless-knitting (ie knitting all the way round on circular needles then switching to two sets as the stitches decrease), and trying-out-continental-knitting (using left hand), admittedly rather odd hillwalking-only ribbed hat (it looks slightly better on me than the panda, but not much)
