I then decided to be adventurous with some wool that I was given at Xmas with some knittng books - to me it just looked like nice random patterned wool. I knitted my second project - some fingerless gloves and imagine my surprise when they came out all stripey! It was just like magic!
Finally my latest creation hasn't quite got the impact of the other two things - I was watching eldest dotterypotter play basketball and took my knitting bag but forgot to take a pattern - d'oh! Being all cocky that I had managed to actually knit two things already, I thought maybe I could just improvise and make something up as I went along.
I decided to go for a phone cover - sounds simple enough? I ended up with something that resembles a little willy warmer! May that be a lesson to me not to run beofre I can walk!
