I know, it’s a bit late to be going on about New Year’s resolutions! However, that’s the reason I’m here. I’ve never been able to just sit and watch TV without doing something; work, sudoku, work. This year I decided that I was going to learn a new skill – knitting. I’d been taught by my mum and granny when I was little, but couldn’t really remember what I was doing and all the books in the craft section of my local bookshop looked far too wordy and complicated – not enough pictures for my liking! Then I hit on the idea of looking in the children’s section and there I found exactly what I was looking for – Learn to Knit.
It had step by step pictures and really simple explanation in plain English and I was knitting ipod covers, soft toys and winter hats before the month was out. The only problem was, since it was a kids book, everything was so little and, apart from the ipod cover, none of it was much use to me. What could I make…
This new found craftiness started to grow… being a bit more creative in what I cooked each day and then I rediscovered sewing.
So my plan is to share little ideas… keeping it simple and learning about blogging along the way! Any tips would be helpful! Right, I’m off – going to make some flapjack – will try to remember to take a photo when I’m finished so that I can post the recipe here.
