Since my Mum bought me a knitting set during the holidays, my sister and I have been knitting non-stop. But our mum has been helping us a lot along the way.
Compared to my sister’s hers is a lot longer because she started first. I’m making a scarf for my parents to share.
So far, because our mum only knows two stitches, we only used purl and knit stitches as well as casting on (first line of stitches). We haven’t finished yet, so we don’t know how to cast off (last stitches). We’ll have to go to our grandmother’s to learn how cast off because mum doesn’t know how to.
I hope you’ve got some ideas about knitting! Do you think you’d like to knit? It might be boring at first, but it gets more interesting towards the end. If knitting isn’t your thing, try cross stitch, crocheting, french knitting, embroidery or sewing. If not, maybe stick to blogging and TV!
