About 2 weeks ago, as I was looking for my water filter cleaning stuff inside a cabinet, I found these!
I bought the book at a great discount during a book fair some time last year and immediately bought the knitting needles for only RM5 at Daiso. At that time, I was so excited to start knitting. I tried to knit according to the instruction but failed to achieve a satisfactory result. Even though my expectation was very low, the outcome was so bad (very irregular) and my fingers got very, very tired, that I abandoned hope.
But my hope was renewed last Sunday (plus I have almost forgotten the last episode), and I decided to do a ‘Knitting Project for Leftover Yarns’ – what a grand undertaking for someone who doesn’t knit! 😀 With the help of my large crochet hook, I crocheted a few chains and from there on, I knitted my strings of leftover bulky yarns. I just joined the strings and behold – a little blanket for my girls’ ‘My Little Pony’.
I realized that crochet chains are not the correct way to knit but I was too excited to start that I didn’t bother to read the book. I was afraid I’d become too befuddled if I try to understand the book, plus I had other chores. What a miserable excuse to take a short cut! 😀
What I love about the knitted blankie, when compared with crocheted ones, is the stretchable quality of the finished product. It makes the blankie soft, fluffy and the texture is also light. I am definitely looking forward to more knitting! I wish I had more bulky yarns, though! 😀
