This Is....something I'm surprised I like

Knitting! My nanna was a wonderful knitter. She was pro and made these fabbo jumpers (which I never appreciated) She taught me how to knit when I was about 10 but it was never something I kept up with. I thought it was daggy
About 5 years ago I saw a knitted shrug at a craft fair and I thought 'I want to make that' and it all started from there. Unfortunately my nanna passed on before that so I was never able to get some tips from her..I really do wish I had taken it up again when she was alive
I love that you can start with a plain ball of wool and then make something you can wear. I guess that's the beauty of crafting
Thanks to Earl and Cookie for this weeks theme and to Three Buttons for hosting

It would be lovely to be able to knit. Its nice that you have been able to come back to something that your Nanna taught you. I sort of did the same with sewing - and like you wish, I had got some tips while my nan was alive (still I think my nan would have been pleased to think I eventually got back to the sewing).

Knitting is something I'd love to learn. One day... one day....
