Knitting Update

Acquire wool: check! I'll be using Basic Spotlight 8 ply, 100% wool, in a groovy dark turquoise. I've got 2 50g balls to start with, don't really have any idea how much I'll need.

Acquire needles: not yet.

But this afternoon I have started actual knitting! With some old wool, a couple of paintbrushes (yes, very sad), a book from the library and this video, I've learnt to cast on & do a basic knit stitch. Yay! Already I can see why people get addicted - there's something relaxing yet satisfying about turning a strand of wool into a piece of fabric. I wonder how long the enthusiasm will hold out...
