I recently returned from an amazing week away in Hayle, Cornwall. I packed plenty of knitting to keep me going and the weather forecast led me to believe I would have plenty of opportunity to get a lot of it done (indoors with a hot drink).

Turns out grains of sand, a salty sea breeze and merino wool don’t get along very well, who knew? I expect I will try it again though, perhaps a little more prepared, but in all likelihood, probably not.

It’s Wednesday again already!
I have had another busy week with my brother’s 30th birthday, a wedding reception, a friend’s birthday and all sorts of other bits and bobs. Fun but exhausting! My brother’s birthday meal was in London and I was gutted I forgot to take my knitting for the train, although it was probably a bit too loud and boisterous to get much done anyway.
In order to make anything, you need to be able to knit (K) and purl (P). You can do all sorts of interesting things with other stitches but you can’t do anything at all without being able to knit and purl. They are your bread and butter stitches. Continue reading “Knit stitch “
