I wouldn't say I am much of a knitter, in fact I have only been able to do it for a few years, but I I do really enjoy it. Especially when its something simple that doesn't require too much concentration. There is also something about winter that makes knitting even more appealing and comforting.
I have just finished making this blanket for the baby, I am really please with it. We don't know what we are having, so it needed to be neutral, but as a fan of bright colours, I didn't want to go down the green, yellow and cream route. So its a bit of the bright side. But I enjoyed making it and think I may even make another one.
