TAKE A BREAK

Simply Knitting - - Your Knits - Kate Pop­plewell, West York­shire

I was knit­ting a baby blan­ket and get­ting a bit fed up. There were so many stitches on each row and the lace pat­tern was giv­ing me a headache. A friend sug­gested I take a break, put it to one side and knit some­thing small and easy. I re­mem­bered all the lit­tle kits I’d saved from my knit­ting mag­a­zines and be­gan with a purse (which I added a fab­ric lin­ing to on the sewing ma­chine) be­fore knit­ting up this cute lit­tle racoon bag charm. I have had so much en­joy­ment knit­ting these items and each one only took a cou­ple of evenings. I have just sub­scribed to your mag­a­zine and I can’t wait to knit the Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions from is­sue 179. Thank you, Sim­ply Knit­ting, for re­mind­ing me that knit­ting shouldn’t feel like a chore!

We’re so glad we could help, Kate – pick­ing up a smaller pro­ject is a great way to re­lieve the monotony of a larger piece. We hope you’re en­joy­ing your blan­ket again now!
