About a wee while ago I post this photo to my Instagram. I’m making a knit 4 purl 4 scarf that I’m embarrassed to say I’m using a Patons pattern for. It merely says cast on 72, k4, p4, continue for two metres, cast off. In truth I, somewhat ambitiously bought the pattern book in the hope of making a jumper. As with many things in life, as I have discovered, you need to start simple. So I’m making a scarf instead.
I was so proud of myself racing along with my new found interest. But the truth is that after we came back from holiday … well I haven’t made much progress at all.
It think in a lot of ways I see sewing and knitting quite differently. I set time aside for sewing, I sew in my sewing room and it’s almost entirely solitary. Knitting, on the other hand, I expect to be able to do whilst doing something else, chatting to my sister, watching TV, eating breakfast.
How do you knit? Are you a social or solitary knitter?
PS. Don’t forget to vote on my facebook poll – what colour do you think would make a good Minoru?
