The sewing machine has not even been switched on this year....Isn't that bad!
Yes I am very behind on my bees and don't even start on my unfinished projects from last year.
But that doesn't mean that I haven't been doing anything. Yes I've taken up knitting.
When my mum was over for Christmas I bought some knitting needles and had a quick little lesson and with her help picked out an easy pattern to start with.
|Not bad for my first project, still have to sew it together though.|
When I come home at night, I'm not one that can have dinner and then climb the stairs to my sewing room and start up the sewing machine. I like to unwind, chill out, especially after dealing with 22 preschool children each day.
I didn't realise that knitting was so relaxing and I seem to have caught the knitting bug as I have started my second project.
And of course I have a fantastic bag for my knitting. Thanks again to my Mouthy Stitches partner Janet.
It all fits in nicely.
