I learnt how to knit from a childhood friend who only managed to teach me how to cast on. We never got beyond that. I remember when I was younger, I really wanted to knit but my parents were never too supportive of my creative pursuits. I think it was because I had the attention span of a goldfish and I moved from one thing to another. I become very passionate about something and then for some reason, I lose it and move on to the next thing. I don't really embark on a hobby with lukewarm enthusiasm, but rather my enthusiasm depended on how many books I can find on the subject. Anyway, back to knitting, I finally learnt how to knit instead of just casting on by following instructions in a book. So knitting has been an on again, off again hobby. I've recently finished my second pair of socks which I gave Raymond for his birthday. This pair is made using wool which knits into a sort of fair isle design. I'm not sure if I would have had the patience to change colours all the time.
The other thing I'm making is a vest. I bought this pattern ages ago but never really started to make it. Here is a picture of work in progress. Lets hope that it does not stay as a work in progress. Although I still have to pick up the rest of the wool from Rubi and Lana's wool shop.
