Hello & Welcome to my knitting blog!

Well I have finally got around to putting together a knitting blog, having spent the past year or so enjoying so many others I thought it was time that I created one myself & shared my many & various knitting creations.

I have been knitting since I was about 7 years old. My mum & my grandmother taught me to knit (Mum tried to teach me but it was tricky as she is L-handed, I am too but unfortunately I knit R-handed, so Grandma got to fix all my mistakes & also had more time to show me) . She is now 87yrs old & has macular degeneration in her eyes, sadly she has not been able to knit for several years now. Grandma loves seeing my projects & I have knitted a few things for her too! Much appreciated knit-gifts as she knows how much effort has gone in.

I look forward to posting more in here regularly and sharing my current projects. Will now attempt to upload a photo of the little girls vest I have on the go at the moment...............
