I’ve Started Knitting Again!

Celebrating my first completed knitting project since I was about ten years old! I have been trying to knit a scarf with this one ball of wool for years and years, I've knitted and undone it so many times over and last night I finally completed it.

One ball obviously wasn't enough for a full scarf, so it's been turned into a twisted neck warmer. Not sure what the official name for such a thing would be, but it's done. And it's so warm and soft too!

My great gran taught me how to knit when I was about 4 or 5.

I remember going to her house after pre-school. I would sit on her pouf in front of her as she taught me. Later on at Primary School, when I was about 9 or 10 years old, we also had "needlework" as a subject and knitting was the focus for one of our school terms. I made a coat hanger cover - but I had help.

Over the years I picked it up again here and there, my mum would refresh my memory and off I'd go, but I never actually finished anything I started - until now. So this is quite an accomplishment!

This morning I started right away with my next project in between dozing off constantly. Payback for too much computer time yesterday, I imagine. I can't wait till I've completed the next piece - it's so rewarding!
