Casting on

Last Christmas a friend made the most amazing wooly leggings, and I want a pair just like them. But, I don’t want to buy them, I want to make them. But, before I can make them I need to learn how to knit. A colleague at work runs a knitting club, so I am going to make the most of one of my lunch breaks and go along to this, and get some tips.

Learning to knit

I’m hoping that by October, when I will be digging out my winter wears, that I will be the proud owner of a pair of knitted leggings. I’m going to start small, learning to make a scarf and perhaps some socks, and I hope that I will be able to learn in spring and summer so that come winter I will be able to knit, and will have made myself some leggings.

I purchased some wool and a set of wooden knitting needles, but didn’t have a clue how to start. Thankfully, Youtube provided me with a good starting point, as I found this great video, which gave me my first introduction in to the world of knitting.

Watch this space and see how my scarf, socks and leggings progress…

  1. Good luck. My first real knitting project is a blanket for my baby, luckily not due for many months yet; my mum’s been a godsend, fixing all my oopses, but they’ve become much less frequent as time’s gone on
