I’m Knitting (another) Blanket

Hi, my names Emily (Hi Emily) and I’m not a consistent knitter. Woah, glad to get that off my chest. Behind the scenes of my blog I do projects which I haven’t shared. Obviously people don’t do things just to show them to the world, and this is one said project.. Even though I have now decided to share it.. I started this blanket maybe about less than a year ago, and I go back to it on and off. I’m never a consistent knitter, I admit it, forgive me.

I’m no expert in knitting, I don’t claim to be and I don’t aim to be. I really enjoy it and that’s the end. I’m a fidget, I’m anxious most of the time, I like making things, and I like a blanket. That’s my thought process.

I went back to knitting a little while ago and made some ugly things to get used to it again, but this was my attempt at making something nice. It’s definitely not finished yet – to be honest its finished when I say it’s finished, there’s no plan – but the process is a nice, relaxed one. I buy random wool from charity shops, and I add it on. That being said I would like to get it done by the winter, but I’m not putting that pressure on myself.

Can you be pumped for a knitted blanket?! I certainly am. Epitome of wild here. Anyway, thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

Knitting Update

Long story short, I’m still crap.

emilyannlou knitting update

After trying knitting again after 10 years, I’m still in the stage of learning. I’ve completely embraced all the mistakes I’ve made and how misshaped this is. This will be the most imperfect and strange looking blanket, and it’s going to be great, right up my street.

I’m enjoying knitting, it’s relaxing. I’m not sure if I will ever learn to knit perfect little jumpers and booties for future nieces and nephews, I’ll leave that to my Nan. While I knit them ugly blankets. Thought that counts, right? The pink knitting needles says it all really.

I am getting better though! Result!

10 years ago, at 14, I used to get blisters on my fingers from guitar. Now I get them from knitting.
