My Creative Space

This week I have chosen to challenge my sludgy brain, my 3 Thumbs and 11 Fat Fingers!!!

Grunting, counting, swearing, throwing, reading, re reading, read again...nope still don't understand...read SLOWLY......BUT!

Have a look at this............



Now I'm bragging......check this out............



Light Entertainment : If you would like an insight into the ranting and raving that goes on in my mind, while I stumble my way through patterns. Then you can pop back to a couple of days ago and have a read of this!

As to a certain magic 12 year old that is teaching herself to knit and thinking that its ONLY HER that finds it CHALLENGING.....Love....YOU NEVER WALK ALONE!!! xx

For more creative spaces fun, grab a cup-pa and pop over to Kootoyoo.

Going great guns Leonie! Good on you, your rantings were entertaining and totally something I can relate to.

Tania said...

Come on - admit it (cos I've been there) - you're gearing up for a wintry obsession?

Cat J B said...

Well done! There is a reason I don't knit....see your other post....that's me exactly. Maybe once the kids are older and I can focus on a task for more than 3 seconds at a time.

Kate said...

Wow Leonie you are click clacking out some gorgeous work. I am super impressed no matter how many times you had to read and reread the pattern. X

Michelle said...

They are looking great - there will be no stopping you soon. Your earlier knitting post cracked me up!

Mel said...

Wait a minute ... you can do that and you think crochet is hard? I could NEVER knit that in a bejillion years! Nice work!

dillpickle said...

W-O-W!! Welcome to knitter-land, where half the fun is trying something you've never done before and feeling chuffed when you can decipher the instructions well enough to have something like you're supposed to at the end!!

Neen said...

Wow, beautiful work, you could write an 'easy' guide to knitting beautifully for the rest of us who are straining now that you have it so spot on. :)

Kylie said...

You make me laugh!
So super talented - again you're making some beautiful things. Love the yellow and the purple is pretty too!!!
I was impressed at the point where you identified the sticks as needles... I always thought they were for stratching!
