While I learned to crochet when I was about 9 years old, I only managed to learn the basic knit and purl (of knitting) when I was an undergraduate (from a book)!
I notice that lately I’ve not blogged about these two activities. It doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped doing them, but it’s just that I couldn’t find the time to do so.
Come to think of it, I’ve produced quite a lot of small items that I either knitted or crocheted.
Let’s see some of the knitted items:
And more booties:
The above pic shows how different yarn produce different size of booties, hence I have to increase/decrease accordingly. I’ve actually knitted their respective pairs too, and 2 more pairs (no pic).
From the yarns DH bought in Tibet, I knitted this:
From the chunky wool Saf bought in NZ for me soem time ago:
2 balls of the above and i got this:
From the wool I bought in Gold Coast some time ago I knitted two scarves at the same time (kiatsu yeah? 🙂 ):
One was given away, and I keep one.
Here’s the collection of scarves I managed to knit just in time for our Korean trip last Dec:
I also attempted to knit the diagonal stitch:
I used 2 strands of Nona acrylic yarns so that I could use the huge kntting needles.
I finished it as a baby blanket/throw:
I sure was happy when I got closer casting of the last 3 stitches:
For now I’ve stopped knitting for a while, though I already have in mind another project using the diagonal stitch above 🙂 .
Note: I’ve slipped all the lose threads 🙂
