A shorter than planned blog for today as I was waylaid by a migraine on Thursday, when I should have been busy blogging. Annoyingly I’m a headachey person, but I live in hopes of growing out of them one day!
So, I will just follow the knitting blog week guidelines for today which ask for something a bit different. I’ve gone for a poem.
I’ve been knitting since I was a very small girl,
Mum taught me to knit, how to cast on and purl.
I wasn’t too hot, I kept dropping stitches,
But all these years later I’m over most glitches.
I knit clothes and accessories, little and big,
Bootees for babies, a cape for a pig,
Jumpers and hats, countless mittens and snoods,
Leggings and toys. I’ve even knit food!
My favourite yarns are alpaca and llama
Since these days my job is a camelid farmer.
My ultimate aim is to spin my own yarn
From the fluffier animals down on my farm.
There’s only one knitting thing that makes me frown –
I get in a tizz when I knit in the round.
I much prefer using two needles to four
But I’ll persevere, and I’ll get there, I’m sure.
I love to create. I hate simply sitting.
If my hands are free then you’ll find me knitting!
You’ll find my pattern for the guinea-pig cape here and for my knitted knitting needles here! Incidentally, I’m working on a book of knitting patterns. Knitting for Frenchaholics is the working title. I’ll be showcasing some of the items soon.
