Knitting is an all time popular craft. While it has waned over the years, it’s popularity is on the rise. People are learning how to knit from online training courses and from books. People are sharing their creations on line on platforms such as ravelry.com.
However, knitting does take time. It’s one of my long held art and craft passions. Are you like me in that you have had spurts with it over the years, as some projects take a long time to complete.
Perhaps like you, it is my knitting projects that stay a long time uncompleted in my cupboards.
My experience with knitting has waxed and waned over the years. The first jumper I knitted was for myself when I was 17 years old. I still have the pattern. I don’t have the jumper. But then put the needles and yarn away for many years.
But knitting is a mindful and somewhat meditative pastime. You can take your knitting bag out and knit when waiting in a queue.
You can take it away on holidays with you.
Knitting is a past-time you can take anywhere.
Unfinished knitting projects – now finished..
Over the years, I have bought many knitting projects, and many have stayed unfinished in the cupboard.
However, I had a knitting purge a while ago, and finished up a lot of yarn bought on special.
I knitted bags, cushions, beanies, and other bits and pieces.
In this process, I learned a lot of new vintage knitting patterns.
However, like with all art and craft projects, I need to understand colour. I found that using a harmonious colour relationship can be the difference between a great project, and an almost great one. You can use the colour relationships post we provide for you to help you with your colour choices.
…until the next project
Have you managed to buy up some more yarn? Are they now sitting as you next unfinished knitting projects in your cupboard waiting to be completed? Mine are..
