For my first project I'd decided to knit a scarf, very simple (in theory): garter stitch and just one colour. I found some beautiful wool in my local wool shop, sadly I threw away the labels so no idea what it is but it's a beautiful chunky deep purple colour (my phone camera doesn't do it justice at all!)
For some reason I am having real problems with tension: when my Mum saw me knitting she was horrified! (why are you holding it like that, why are you pulling it so tight etc etc) and I've managed to drop stitches on the way without even realising it, so it's rather a wonky scarf (I've decided it has character and shall love it regardless!)
Well I'm going to attempt one for Mr Woolly next, so will try and pull it less tight, as well as try to notice if I drop stitches ;) Onwards and upwards and all that!
My crochet hearts are still progressing nicely and offer me moments of calm amid a hectic week
I am going to make them in lots of colours and make them into heart garlands as shown here
Has anyone else had projects not quite work out? Or does anyone have any tension tips?!
