Just joined the forum after getting back into knitting (yet again). At the moment I can't knit fast enough but it is so absorbing and, as a full-time mum to 2 boys, relaxing in an evening when they're both tucked up!
As well as knitting by myself I am a member of local craft group which meets every Thursday in our houses. Sometimes we knit, sometimes we learn a new skill like cardmaking, glass painting etc, but mostly we eat cake, drink tea and chat! I always take my knitting!
Have just won 3 balls of Sugar'n Cream cotton - anyone got a simple pattern? Although I have been knitting on and off for years, I do find patterns daunting! Am currently knitting a bag to hold my knitting from 2 balls of Sugar'n Cream cotton - fantastic colours.
Anyone know of simple
knitting patterns? I've borrowed Penny Hill's 'Learn to Knit' from a friend and have found these patterns easy to follow. I've noticed lots of books say they contain simple patterns (like Debbie Bliss) but I just freak out at too many PSSOs!!! Ideally I'd like patterns for me (I'm 43 but young-at-heart) and my two lads (7 and 5).
Thanks! Any suggestions welcome!!
