I called in to Spotlight for black wool to keep going on my hexagons (see last nights post here!) - that is all I needed, two balls of black, my plan was to be in and out in under 5 minutes. That is where my plan came apart...empty shelf! Oh darn-it!
Then I hear something from the next shelf calling me...it was COLOUR and it was calling my name...LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME!
So I did - that was my first mistake. he he
Again, one of my earliest memories is my Nan knitting socks - she knitted all Dad's work socks for years and years and years. Knitting was the second crafty thing I learnt...quilting came much later.
Part of the reason I have never knitted socks is because I can't use double ended or circular needles, I have tried a couple of time and CAN'T. Well pfffttt to that - you can do anything if you try. I so need to remember that before procrastinating for years because I think I can't.
So race home, hot coffee, find the needles (also my Nan's) and try, just perservere and try. Work through the awkward start, not sure where the needles should sit...but keep trying. And suddenly I am off and racing...ohhh so exciting.
This is the brand of the wool - they have lots of beautiful colours in it, I love variegated thread and wool as it is so exciting to see the colours come together as you work.
Have a nice night everyone!
