Knit one purl one
I've learned to knit! My sister taught me over New Year, and I've finally got around to photographing my efforts. All the lovely knitting patterns in my vintage magazines (and the difficulty in finding original vintage knitwear) inspired me to take it up. In fact my first project will be one such pattern - a cardigan from 1943. I figured, yes I could start by making something ultra simple like a scarf, but really that's a whole lot of time invested for a practice run - may as well dive straight in with something I'll wear lots, and just accept that it's not going to be perfect. I've ordered needles - now just need to decide on a colour and choose some yarn. Wish me luck!
