My main hobby is knitting. The main reason I like it is you can do it anywhere, including in front of the TV while drinking wine. What’s not to love about that?! I’d say I was an intermediate knitter, but I’ve still got lots to learn. I’m also quite a slow knitter and I don’t really like knitting to order. I like to knit what I want, when I want. At the moment, I’ve got a few wip’s, including an ear warmer and a jumper. Hopefully I’ll finish them before the end of winter, but there are no guarantees!

I like making things to wear, like the hat and scarf below. I like knowing there’s no one else wearing the same one as me and I like the fact that a few balls of wool became something wearable.

I also love these bunny nuggets that I made – one for me, one for my sister, a few years ago. They make great Easter gifts or if you just need to make someone smile! I won’t lie to you, they are a little fiddly (I prefer chunky knitting – it’s quicker & easier) but I think you’ll agree that these cheeky fellows are worth it!

I also love a bit of paper craft, as and when the mood strikes, and still make silver jewellery occasionally, though not for a while. I like sewing too, but knitting is the one thing I go back to again and again. I would like to learn how to crochet, and may learn next year, but it’s gotta’ be better than knitting to take the number one spot!
