Knit: Progress Report

One of the good things, if there is such a thing, about breaking my foot is that I've started on one of my aims for 2013. Knitting! After a full day of work my foot aches so I've been sitting on the couch with my circular needle and yarn, watching You Tube videos about casting on, knit stitch and purl stitch. I've decided to start with the GAP-tastic Cowl. And boy, is knitting more complicated than I thought. I bought the wrong yarn and learnt the hard way. It involved scissors to get myself out of the mess. It wasn't pretty but I'm persevering and I've order some new chunky yarn and a longer circular needle.

Wish me luck!!

  1. Good luck with your knitting project. I find knitting very peaceful in front of the tellie, nice way to wind down when I don't feel like sewing. The Gap-tastic is a great knit and goes quite quickly once you get going.

  2. Awesome! I was consdering making the gap-tastic cowl as a first timer project too! Might wait until you've road-tested yours. You can be my pet knitting guinea pig :D

  3. I found "wool and the gang" videos really good when I was learning how to knit. http://www.woolandthegang.com/en/videos/index

    (I'd also love to get some of their chunky yarn and needles, it looks so cozy!)

  4. I admire you, because with this heat wave merely looking at yarn makes me fingers sweat :-)

    However I love knitting and I hope you'll love it too.
