Sitting Knitting

This evening I am knitting. Sitting knitting and sometimes standing knitting or watching TV knitting. But  not  blogging knitting. That’s a stitch too far for my limited knitting skills. I am knitting a pot holder, made up of small mitred squares.  It will be similar to these ones that I made earlier in the year.Pretty Knitting

I use hand washable New Zealand wool, knit squares, crochet a border, then wash the pot holder in very, very hot water so that the wool felts. Great fun and very easy.

      Thank you. I am always surprised by how beautifully they come out of the wash. The real beauty is in how functional they are.

    I’m afraid mine wouldn’t be square – I seem to recall a nasty habit of losing or gaining stitches at inopportune times. I’ll leave the knitting to you! 🙂

      Well done you. I find crochet much harder than knitting. But it is good exercise for fingers and brain.
