Last night me and my boyfriend were watch ‘A Clockwork Orange’ when I realised that I had nearly finished my first ever knitting project. It had grown much quicker than I had expected over the last few days and I couldn’t leave it so close to the end without finishing it off. So, with half an eye on the film I learnt two decrease methods and how to knit a button hole so that at the end of the evening I had this:
Ta-da! It still needs a press and the ends need finishing but I am completely over the moon! (Also, sneak preview of the necklace James got me for Christmas! Love it!)
And here it is laid flat:
I even got to use on of the fabulous buttons Mrs M. sent me! I can’t believe the project turned out so well for my first attempt! I’m super happy! You can find the pattern in the ‘related articles’ section below if you want to have a go…as you can see, it is great for beginners!
My next attempt is going to be the lovely owl wrist warmers that were featured in Mollie Makes magazine a little while ago. This will be a scary one as I haven’t done any cable work before…or knitted in a circle using double pointed needles…it will be interesting to see how it turns out! For this reason, it may be a little quiet on the knitting front for a while as I try and get my head round everything!
