Confession: I can knit but I’m not a knitter.
I truly wish it were different as there are so many beautiful knitting patterns out there but I just don’t find it as relaxing as the hook and it all comes down to making a mistake. With the hook, it’s a simple undo and re-work…with the sticks, well it’s picking up stitches and the whole thing gets me into a major flap.

I’m determined though and bit by bit I am dipping my toes back into the land of knittery. Of course, that means I am sticking with super easy peasy projects (love to know of any that are tried and tested) and ‘the long [and winding] mesh’ was one of these.
I needed a few tips from Ev (who is knitter extraordinaire) which worked out well as I took some Wollmeise off her hands. It is the first time I have ever used Wollmeise and it didn’t disappoint…
Stunning, vibrant and saturated blue, blue, blue. Love it.
