Hurray! I have finally done it .... started and finished a knitting project!!
I have knitted a lovely scarf using lovely pale pink and minty green mohair wool .... I had never had to "cast off" before (as I had never actually finished anything that I had started knitting before!) so found help on youtube!
Hmmm...I might try knitting something else - maybe a tea-cosy? Not sure how difficult these are as I have only ever knitted scarves (or half-scarves!!) .... but as one of my new years resolutions was to make more stuff, rather than just talking about it - I think I need to get started on my next crafty project straight away!!!!!
