TAKE A BREAK
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!
