And on the 3rd attempt!!




Well!! After 2 false starts HOPEFULLY here I am!!!




Ive missed my morning on the sofa with James Martin to get this up and ready. Its been 1 step forward, 2 steps back!! but here goes.




I'll start by showing you a bit of my knitting. I used to knit loads, but I think ive lost a lot of patience over the years, so now I stick to the very simple. Ive knitted lots of these for presents as they are a) quick to do, and b) very cheap to make. They take 1 ball of chunky wool (managed to find this Rowan wool for £1 per ball in my second home - Dunelm Mills) big needles (no 9) cast on around 18 stitches and rib until you run out of wool. Add a button that I sew on firmly (no button hole) and pop it over your head for a cosy neck warmer. Voila

What a fab idea!
I am learning to knit but it is a slow process because I have too many projects on the go. I've knitted half a scarf so far!
