Sit & Knit

It’s probably the turn in the weather towards autumn (neatly bypassing summer without collecting £200 or passing Go) that is making me crave giant, chunky knitted things. I want a huge big squishy grey and/or mustard blanket.

I want to make one but sadly all my knitting needles, my giant size 20s, my selection of bamboos and even my straggly old metal pins are AWOL, lent out to the Craft Mafia and lost forever, it seems. One day, though, I will get some replacements organised and get knitting. Knitting on giant needles is very easy and produces results very quickly, so even I should be able to fit in some knit time in amongst my busy schedule! Or, I’ll bribe my mum.

  1. I love these cable-knit covers for furniture. I’m not a great knitter though, it’s taken me 8 months to knit a new collar for my poncho/wrap-thing that I love, but has a polo neck that I can cope with.
    12 inches by 20 inches of stocking stitch in 8 months. Probably not going to be able to knit a chair/stool cover in under a decade. Doesn’t stop me wanting one though!
