HOBBIES

The finished tray. I am very happy with my work - Yes even if I say so myself!

Today’s  Adventure: KNITTING. I have knitted many things during my lifetime but I wouldn’t say it is one of my fortes.

Jam Fact: Knitting does my head in, especially if the pattern is tricky.

I have never been a good knitter.  In fact I can honestly say that I am what you would call a just a pass knitter. And as for patterns well my head doesn’t cope well with complications these days so a pattern to follow should not be on the menu but my friend JU said I could make this cotton summer vest – it is just a knit and purl with a twist in it. The vest looked great on the model, so I said I was up for the challenge and surprise, surprise this little UNYOUNG JAM has managed to do the knit / purl with a twist and have almost finished the back piece. How good is that and the head is going along OK with it. So I am feeling pretty chuffed –just hope when I knit the front piece I still manage to get the pattern right.

Who knows I may elevate myself to being an OK knitter after all.

Until tomorrow – be kind to yourself.
