Handicrafts

I think I’m going to learn to knit. I’ve wanted to for 20 years or so now but just never quite got around to it.
I have some needles and yarn from the last attempt so I’m going to try again.

I’m going to start with the classic scarf.
I’d like to work up to socks and hats.
“One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas come and gone and I haven’t a single pair of socks. People will insist on giving me books.”(1)(2)

Wish me luck.

(1) This is Dumbledores reply to Harry when Harry asks him what he sees when he looks into the mirror of erised.
(2) This is not my opinion, I much prefer getting books over socks, but I’m much younger than Dumbledore so it’s possible that when I get to be his age I might prefer socks to books, but not right now.

    • If I ever get to socks I’ll post pictures!

      At the rate I’m going it may be a year or two though. :-/

      I never thought it would be this difficult!

      It’s not the stitch itself, it’s making all the stitches even.

      Heck, it may be next year before I manage a scarf!
