When I was ten or eleven years old, I knitted a scarf.
It was long and blue and the stitches were uneven.
After seeing my nana knitting perfectly even stitches, I gave up on knitting, deciding it was nothing for me.
A few years later, I turned to crochet instead (and I love it! Right now I’m making a blanket!), but now I finally re-discovered knitting.
It all started with a little brochure inside one of mum’s magazines, telling me about “Das große Stricken” – “The Big Knit” – where you knit little hats for smoothie bottles and for every behatted bottle that is being sold in a supermarket, 30ct go to the German Red Cross.
A cute idea, I found, so I started knitting again.
But I keep knitting anyway. ‘Tis early practise only makes the master.
And what are you up to these days? Do you want to get knitting, too?
