That looks so very calming to me, I hope it is in reality. x

38 squares. I’m planning to stop at 48, so 2 patterned and 8 plain to go. Then I’m going to take it on holiday, to the farm again where we went last year, and crochet it up together. And then… and then…

It looks great. Nice and relaxing. Not knitted anything in years but it was relaxing from what I recall.

This has been something of a exercise in staying sane and it’s been good. Time to move on now though.

Oh wow! I fail at knitting so I’m very jealous!!

I learned when I was little but only really did it again when I was pregnant last year. Love it now though.

Honest shot of a real home and the knitting is so colourful and great too.
Reminds me of wood winding with my late Mum

I have to admit to clearing up the clutter first. Forgot to move the blasted remote though!!!

I just love to knit. I have way too much wool 😉
Oh man, me too. A proper stash 😀

my hubby goes mad. He tries to steer me away from wool shops lol
I really like the colours in the rainbow knit on the top left, so cheery! x

I made a rainbow armband for International Baby Loss Day last year and then knitted a square to match it. Then liked it, so ended up doing ‘rainbows’ of different shades of a colour too.

I love knitting too, find it relaxing. I can do one stitch though!!

Honestly, once you know ho to knit and purl, everything else is remarkably easy. All the ones in Freddie’s blanket were just combinations of those.

Just makes you want to gather up all the yarn in the house and start being creative. Great Silent Sunday.

You know, it really did get me motivated to finish the blanket too; I’m ready for something new to do now.

ooooooo felts in the living room – I’ve had to ban them until children can learn to put the damn lids on and not strew them all over the floor.
As for knitting, I got as far as dishcloths when I was learning as a child and abandoned those as too many holes appeared. Never tried since. I think my children would see the needles as deadly weapons in their many spats! May rethink when they are older. Very jealous you can knit, it always looks such a peaceful thing to do.

Haven’t tried dishcloths!!!! As for the felts… hmm Sharpies soaking through on to the table was a low point. But if you wait for them to learn that, you’ll wait a long time!!!

I wish I had a hobby which helped me relax and unwind. I read a lot but this looks like a great way to unwind. x

I did it more to occupy my thoughts than relax really, both while pregnant and afterwards. It’s good for stilling the jitters.

I find knitting a calming activity too.
April 17, 2011 at 7:36 pm
Oh, I so want to learn to knit! Great picture 🙂
April 18, 2011 at 10:18 am
Do it – it is great 🙂

Love this shot, feels so homely!
April 18, 2011 at 1:03 pm
I was pleased with it. It was ‘there’ as it were. I tidied up around it and added the extra ball of wool to turn it into what I wanted but the arrangement of squares and stuff was just as it fell. I love pretties that nearly happen themselves 🙂
April 18, 2011 at 12:55 pm
Great mix of colours there. What was in the mug?
April 18, 2011 at 1:01 pm
Tea. Was being the operative word 😉

Please teach me how to tension properly on Thursday. I am absolutely useless! Am trying to practice at the moment by doing a scarf but I am quite sure it is far too tight!
April 20, 2011 at 11:09 am
I will. Promise. It’s all in the wool hold 🙂
