I am learning to knit! My Mum and sisters all knit *beeyootifully* Me, I crochet. That’s the way it is. But recently the kids keep asking me to make things for them, and there aren’t a lot of kids’ jumper patterns in crochet. So, I bit the bullet – and bought a ‘learn to knit’ book.
I have been pleasantly surprised at how much I am enjoying the process, and how the motion of the basic stitches comes very naturally, after years of watching Mum knit. The intricacies have had me stumped a couple of times, and I pulled the whole lot out once already, but I am quietly proud of my progress. This is a chunky rib knit beanie for Mr Age 2 – it probably won’t stay on his head for very long (until we move somewhere very cold), but it is the thought that counts! And I love the colour of the yarn (which is Patons Inca, by the way).
I asked Miss Age 4 if she thought her brother would like the colour (I told her it was chocolate brown). Her considered response was “Yes, I think he will like it, because I know he likes chocolate“. Little Miss Literal!
