Dreaming of Knitting

I have a dream of being able to knit clothing. Every day I watch Mum sitting there with her wool and needles, creating a masterpiece of a cardigan. And every time I wish I had the skills and the patience to make one for myself.

Not being a skilful knitter however, the goal of knitting myself a cardigan seems to be far off at the moment. I've never attempted anything so large, or so complex before. So, it seems I need practice before I can pick up my needles for that project.

My plan then, is to start small and work my way up. And so I am starting with a hat for my youngest sister, Gemma-Rose. Made with odd balls of left over wool, it's going to match her Neenish Tart cardigan made by Mum.

And from there, who knows what else I might attempt? Maybe one day I will at last work my way up to creating my own piece of perfect clothing.


  1. I started to learn but got annoyed at my complete inability to hold the needles, keep track of yarn, and a few other things I can't remember.

  2. Why not? All it takes is practice.
    I dream of being able to play a really complicated song on my guitar. Won't happen tonight though.

  3. Believe it or not, my mother is the master of the cardigan ... or I at least know what that is because of her. :)
