I've been getting 'itchy feet' recently and been doing a few other things too. I went to Battle the other day and went into the most lovely little old fashioned haberdashery shop, you know the type, can't move cos there's so much in there, ribbons, buttons, wool, material, hooks and eyes, patterns, etc etc. Absolute heaven. My eye was caught to a knitting pattern on the wall - of a square hat with pom poms on it! I kept going back to it and in the end I asked to see it. There were four hats on the pattern, all different, and I fell. So I bought the wool, needles and the pattern and off I went home.
The first one I knitted was the square one - it only took the evening - and it would have been quicker but I made a mistake with the pom poms.
So encouraged with my first attempt I made another one. This time a simple one but with a flower on it
Unfortunately I couldn't make any more as I'd made a mistake with the amount of wool I needed for the third hat, I misread the pattern, so I've got to go back again to the shop. What a hardship!
I can't remember the last time I did some knitting, probably when my children were babies, and they are 31, 33 and 35 now! and I really enjoyed myself. So I may be making something else, but I need to look out for some interesting patterns and ideas. Any suggestions?
