I’m happy to report that the Christmas knitting which looked so intimidating just a couple of days ago is now much more manageable.
I completed and by now even gift-wrapped two major projects that have taken up a lot of my time of the past months and I can’t wait for Christmas purely so I can blog about it and post pictures as I’m quite proud of what I’ve done.
Overall I’m not completely happy with it though. I’ve thought for a while now that my knitting hasn’t evolved and instead of being confident with with stitches I’m winging it with everything apart from the basic knit and purl stitches. Everything else is trial and error which often makes the completed work look sloppy. Plus I’m sure I’m creating a lot of unnecessary work for myself.
Seeing that online tutorials don’t work well for me and there aren’t any classes in the area I’m going to have to start looking at other options.
