Thanks everyone ... I say 4 weeks because although I learnt to knit when I was younger, it was just rows and rows of knit and a few of purl - never cast on or off and never had a FO, just left over wool from my mum, lots of holes etc. This is my first real knitting ... if it runs in the family then I could be a natural cos my Mum is v.v. good. I can also sew and bake so maybe it is a domesticated thing!

I've also tried cables, (much easier than I thought) so the scarf I do for my brother will probably be part cable / part stitch sampler - I want to try basket weave, moss stitch and all the different stitches that are in the Knitting Bible - so many to choose from, not enough things to knit!!

Well, unfortunately No 2 son is ill today, so I can't go to work :crying: BUT it means I can spend most the day :XX: :XX: :XX:

My new book 'last minute knitted gifts' is due to arrive today so I will have to try to stop myself ordering the wool for it! :shock:

I wish I had thought to do this a few years ago ...

My husband loves woodworking and other home-improvement projects and when he buys tools (and tools and tools and tools) I always say it's way cheaper than therapy! This also makes it pretty easy to justify my knitting purchases (go price out a table saw and compare that to some knitting needles!)

Sooooo you are off to a great start in no time flat...plus the therapy benefit!

Everything looks wonderful. Hard to believe you've only been knitting 4 weeks! I especially like the tubey!
