she said....knitting all the way home

The last time I picked up a pair of knitting needles I was about 7.  Back then in the time it took my Nan create an entire jumper I was still trying to figure out what slip knot was and times haven't changed much.

This week I headed down to Drink, Shop, Do, which is place that is a mix of ..well drinking shopping and doing. Crammed with fabulous things to sit on, buy, drink and eat they also offer knitting lesson, with a cocktail on the side. How could i resist. 

Despite my lack of confidence, I actually got it! Thats right people, I now know the basics of knitting. OK, its taken about 4 hours to achieve enough to make a knitted sweat band but I am still going. So watch this space for glorious knitting results, the plan is a chunky knit bolster.  In the meantime here are some gorgeous knitted items that inspired the whole thing in the first place.

Left to right, stripe yellow and white pillow, Darkroom, £75, Knit Stools, Claire-Anne O'Brien. Knitted Blanket, Le Souk,  €249.95. Knitted Lampshade, Aria. Red and White pillow, Darkroom (as before) Mustard Poufs, Darkroom, £470.
