I am taking part in the Annual Knitting and Crochet blog week kindly organised by Eskimimi Makes. Each day for the next seven the bloggers who take part are set a challenge to post about a certain crafty subject with the aim that we all stretch our blogging capabilities, meet new bloggers and find new inspiration.
Days 6 & 7 are (not only late!) but about a tool to covet and looking forward.
As I do only simple crafting I don’t have a huge “tool box” full of goodies. I use standard metal knitting needles and crochet hooks and that is about it. I do have a monster heirloom darning needle that my Mum has given me for sewing in my ends which I am quite proud of. Especially after a lady I met on a train to Devon (who owned a craft shop) even commented that it was a proper old-fashioned needle. Not sure what she meant by that, but I puffed up with pride anyway (freak I hear you say!!). But the one little tool that I love is my pair of sharp scissors. They are so sweet and bright and pretty. I love them.
Looking forwards I would really like to expand my knitting repertoire to some more complicated items. Like many people I think I would need to have a number of projects on the go for this to happen so I could still pick up a simple project when I needed something easy. But when my brain power isn’t too depleted I would like to have a go at cables, lace work and socks. I am rashly going to predict that I might try a sock by the end of the year. Watch this space!! Mind you I mentioned this to someone else and they said turning the heel was very difficult which dented my resolution a little. Ho hum….
I have loved these 7 days of being challenged to not only think about things differently but also to post in different ways. Big thanks to Eskimimi Makes for taking the time to organise such a great blog week.
