Hello fellow knitters, textile artists & those who ended up on this blog post by accident. I should have posted long before now but am determined to get one more post published in 2017.
I got some great knitting tools and resources this Christmas that I am excited to use. I got some pompom makers (very needed), a fantastic set of interchangeable double pointed needles, and three magazines. The Knit Simple Christmas edition has so many nice projects that I hope to make as gifts for next season. Thanks to my wonderful family for their constant support of my favourite hobby.
Socks seemed to be the most popular project for me this year. I had a really enjoyable time teaching intermediate knitting at City Centre Community School. (BTW if you can spare 2 hours once a week for January & February they are looking for a knitting instructor. You won’t regret it! ) This year, I hope to try some more adventurous sock patterns. Details to follow. (Probably not pictures though, I’m pretty terrible at that)
I’m not having much luck at my local yarn shops finding some Plymouth yarn that my mom needs to finish a project. Online shopping we go!
Some other knitting goals I would like to work on in 2018 are:
- Sewing seams
- Basic colourwork
- Two stranded knitting
Now that I’m somewhat settled in Dartmouth, I’ll be back to teaching knitting basics. I’ll be doing a session for beginners at Findlay Community Centre as well as a drop-in group at a couple of local libraries. Dates TBD but will post here and on Facebook as soon as I have them.
Well readers, I wish you all the best in 2018. Thanks for coming along on my knitting adventures; hope you join me in the New Year.
