Dear fellow knitters,
Happy new year to you all from London.
It seems that Quinton has done better than me on the knitted gift front - my Dad'd jumper never even made it onto the needles, let alone off. Although I did finish a felted reindeer table mat (!!!!!) and a cable hat...
So, as to resolutions. My husband bought me a great fairisle pattern source book for Christmas so I'm going to be using up my ever-increasing stash and getting fairisle friendly. Necessity is the mother of invention and all that so we'll see what happens.
I'm also planning to master the art of continental knitting - my Swiss/Italian friend always always tells of her Italian Nonna winning speed knitting competitions in the village hands down - and so I'm going to give it a go. I'm OK on the knit but the purl stitch is a b*s^t%r*! Any tips welcome.
Love and happy knitting to you all
