It’s been a long time since I last picked up a pair of knitting needles, infact I’d say it was a good fifteen years! Crikey! My nan first taught me to knit and I think I quite enjoyed it but I can only ever remember making scarves. It’s no wonder I stopped knitting, if only I’d open my eyes to all the wonderful things I could have made, I might be a better knitter now.
I realised some time ago after making a pot of tea, that I really needed a tea cosy. I thought about buying one ready made as there are so many lovely cosies about but decided to dig out my old knitting needles and have a go myself. I found some amazing knitting patterns online and got a little too excited about what I could potentially make. I only got as far as reading the pattern before I realised that I am a bit out of my depth. Having never read one before it completely freaked me out but I will not be defeated. I need a little more practice before attempting this challlenge but I’m going to stick with it. Hopefully with a little more help from my mum and my nan I will get there eventually. Wish me luck!
Some gorgeous tea cosies that have inspired me to knit again.
