Last weekend I popped along to
Morris & Sons (Sydney) to learn
how to circular knit.
Why when you can barely knit?!
(I imagine you are all thinking)
Fair enough, that’s exactly
what I was thinking 30 minutes into the class.
Actually, I think everyone in the group was too.
About themselves, not me…
I am not that bad at knitting!
The class was taught by the lovely Lyndell,
who did a marvellous job ignoring our grumblings about
using 10mm needles,
using 10 mm needles joined together,
& messing about with magic loops.
After about an hour we stopped complaining.
We learned loads!
Including how to knit a folded hem.
The yarn I used is by Morris & Sons.
It’s a 20 ply monster called Fuel
(colour way Cargo).
I used two balls of the stuff (with some left over)
& it only took me another 1.5 hours
to finish my Slouchy Beret.
Which by the way DOES NOT suit me
no matter what jaunty angle I tease the thing into.
‘Stubborn Slouchy’ more like.
Still it’s not bad for a first time
