My mother was extremely talented when it came to hand knitting and machine knitting and we never went without on the cardigan or jumper front from a very early age. She also nearly always had jumpers on the go for one of us including herself from as far back as I can remember. She was also exceptional at hand knitting Aran style cardigans and jumpers and oh they do keep you so warm. I have a go at knitting and I have picked up more than I realised but I am still very much a novice. Mum got into machine knitting when I was about five years old. I inherited her machines, including her first one. I am not quite sure what to do with them really as I haven't got a clue how you set them up or what. They are just as she left them, all four of them.
After she passed I ended up with all her crafting stuff. I have loads of Aran wool, and I do like a good throw and I spotted this, initially thinking that it was knitted. It is actually crocheted and it has been put on my list of to do's. I have wool to use up and from what I have seen of the video tutorial so far I think with a bit of patience I might be able to achieve this. Might be one to start at Christmas for the coming year.
Today for me ideally would be a Duvet Day, but that is just not going to happen. My arm has been extremely uncomfortable and I have the sniffles and a headache. All minor reactions to the Covid Booster which I had yesterday. Better this than being hospitalised a small price to play I think. I am classed as high risk in this respect. OH has not even had his invitation for the Booster yet.
If I can get to grips with this throw blanket, will create a bit more space in the longer term. I was also given a load of Aran wool as well (not that I have ever knitted an Aran), but I can always find a way to use up quality items.
Looking around this particular You Tube Channel this lady seems to have several very tempting throws to have a go at.
Well that's another one for the to do list then.
Catch you soon.
