Knitting ! I'm working on it
It sounds unbelievable but yes, I have been knitting. Actually trying out various stitches and making swatches. I've done cables and even a bit of lace knitting. It all seems pretty easy when I'm doing it in the swatch sizes. I wonder if I'll be able to follow through it on a bigger piece. I sometimes just mess up the stitches when I'm working on it long enough- funny though , I thought when you work at something longer it is supposed to get better not messed up. Hmmm......I have to figure this one out!
My latest projects is a baby hat called Tiny Topper From the Vogue Beginners knitting book.



It's my first ever knitted piece measuring exactly as the pattern says. I even worked a little swatch to check the gauge. I also learned to measure the stitches.

Now to pick up something a little more challenging. Maybe a simple baby sweater next - until I get the courage to do it! Knitting scares me a little : there I said it! Now that it is out in the open ,I have to get over my fears and move on with until it scares me no more.

That is so cute, Yasmin! For me, it looks hard to do, and I might not attempt it just yet...but I'm envious of your FO ;)

Your little hat is a triumph! Don't be ashamed to say you are afraid of knitting! I am so totally scared of crochet, but I'm getting more determined to learn. I hope I have as much success as you have had with your knitting!

Being your first time, you've knitted pretty well. I hate to say this but I'm scared of knitting. I've tried to learn it from my grandma but in trying to teach me, she ended up forgetting some of the stitches.. lol.I am just happy with my crocheting. Looking forward to see your other knitted works.
