I have decided that I really want to learn how to knit. It seems like it would be so relaxing once I got the hang of it, and then you can get something really cute and unique out of it at the end too. Me and my friends I am sharing a flat with next year have decided this will be our thing. I have already bought some knitting needles off ebay, so it’s too late to back out now.
Last time I tried to knit it ended badly though. I got so frustrated with it that I gave up and never did so much as a single stitch. (I couldn’t stop it from slipping through every time.) I’m hoping that this time I will be more co-ordinated as I am now older and out of the clumsy child stage (kind of.)
Look at these adorable cupcakes! I would be very happy if I could learn to make something like this. A plain pink scarf will probably be my first project, seems more simple than something with detail, plus it will be warm to wear.
