In case you missed my ramblings on Twitter, I've been learning to knit on the round. For some reason I was afraid of it for ages - with anything practical, I really learn better when someone's there to guide me through things, but I managed to figure most of this out by myself because IT'S SO EASY. Turns out all I needed was a basic knowledge of knitting and the knack of joining the circle, helpfully provided by Louise. Done! I've already made Tam a hat, which took less than a week and is the easiest, quickest thing I've ever made, and now I'm making me one. It would be done by now if I (and Mother) hadn't stumbled over the pattern - it's saying to continue in the pattern until I have so many stitched but neither of us can work out how the pattern continues! Maths was never my strong point...
I'm not usually a fan of pink but this wool is all soft and fluffy so that makes it exempt. And obviously it'll have a lovely pompom on the top, which makes anything awesome. Here's the pattern, for anyone who wants to have a go.
Since I'm at Mother's this week I thought I'd snap her work in progress. She started making my uncle this vintage jumper months ago then sort of stalled, and is now knitting nothing. I wouldn't mind, but she got wool to make me another jumper so I'm trying to guilt her into finishing this so she can get cracking on mine!
What's everyone knitting now?
