How we Started Knitting
Inspired by Molly's grandmother who has been knitting all of her life, Molly knit (or tried to) her first pair of socks. She chose a Fortissima Mexico Sock Yarn from Wisconsin Craft Market to knit them and still uses the same pattern today!
Years after enjoying her first knitting experience with her Grandma, Clare’s flatmate taught her to knit one evening in a pub. Over the following days she taught herself to purl and knit her first item from Debbie Stoller’s Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook
On the NeedlesUsing Rico Baby Classic dk in green twist , Clare has started a ribbed baby bonnet , has nearly finished two self designed cardigans, one in a blue tweed woll mix from her stash, and anther red using Wolle Roedl Sienna Big and is about to rip back some lace legwarmers in Sandnes Garn Alpakka.
Molly is working on a pair of socks in festive colours using Fortissima Mexico Sock Yarn. She is making good progress on her Woodstove Season cardigan using ggh Solitaire yarn in the colourway rosa. Molly has almost finished dressing her daughter’s new fairy which she is excited to gift her on her 2nd birthday!
