This knitting lark is all still a little bit like magic to me. You know, taking a ball of yarn, clicking the needles together, forming loops & twists and then ta da, you have made a piece of fabric.  Amazing.

Take cables for example –  to the uninitiated they appear  pretty tricky but once you’re in the know it’s a pleasant surprise to realise they are easier than they look & pretty nifty to make too. Honest!

I’m making me a hat, hopefully it will turn out all slouchy & cute.  The pattern is called Rosebud, so in the cuteness stakes it’s off to a head start (no pun intended).

You can find the pattern &  yarn details etc all over on Ravelry.

That is looking TREMENDOUSLY good! Cables are pretty cool, aren’t they? You’ll be done in no time.

I don’t know anything about knitting but I love the look of a fabric bowl in use. Can’t wait to start mine.
