It's funny how it all comes back to you even though it's been a good thirty years since I last picked up a pair of knitting needles. It's like riding a bike - you don't forget.
And what started me back on this? Well basically I'm going away for a few days with some friends and we're staying somewhere where there's practically no wifi. My friend said she was going to take some knitting with her and I thought I'll take some books to read, but then I thought, knitting sounds like more fun. I want to play!
So I picked myself up a big ball of chunky wool in the brightest cheery pink I could find from a little local shop and pair of knitting needles (after being guided as to the size) and set to with a little help from a couple of video tutorials from Wool and the Gang.
And it all came flooding back.
So currently, I'm just playing with my ball of pink wool and maybe it might turn in to something and then again, it might not. But basically it's just the starting point and it should eventually lead to this ...
I've ordered my Wool & The Gang Whistler scarf kit whilst their January sale is on to take on my mini break but hurry hurry if you want to do this ... it ends tomorrow at midnight!
