Well actually off the needles now, but I did have some knitting, albeit small knitting, on the needles earlier this week. I am absolutely desperate to learn how to do proper knitting. I mean I can knit, perl, cast on, cast off, increase and decrease - but - I can't read a pattern! Well not to knit something proper, like a jumper - which I would love to do and being a useful item, it would be so much easier to justify my excessive yarn purchases to Mr. VW. So anyway, earlier this week I thought I'd try to knit :: something/anything :: in the course of two evenings I managed to whip up this teeny tiny vest for the little doll I created a few months back. It's actually a combination of knitting and crochet and although serves absolutely no purpose, other than to give me a tiny (enormous actually) pleasure, I am quite pleased.
I have been surfing the web looking for the simplest of patterns to start and I found this pattern. Doesn't look to hard does it? I sort of envision a whole serious of them joined together to make a lovely throw? What do you think? Nuts? Well in anticipation that you don't all tell me I am loony, I have bought the yarn (simple, inexpensive cotton) below to test my skills.
I really need to finish my crochet love blankie first, but of course we all know that's not going to happen!!!
Four rounds left to go, two blue, two purple then a row of something fancy to finish. Hooking as fast as I can due to my uncontrollable excitement over starting a heart blankie.
