The Blog

So, I’m pretty new to knitting… but I can’t get enough of it!
I could knit all day… ohhhh, if only!
Two days ago I picked up knitting needles for the first time in 7 months! I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d remember how to do it again…
It all happened so naturally, got my circular needles and some lovely yarn, cast on and before I knew it I was knitting again… didn’t forget a thing! Phew!
Last year when I began knitting, I had an endless number of questions and needed somewhere to go for answers. I stumbled upon
The Purl Bee { }
Amazing site with lots of helpful tips and tutorials and projects!
I wanted to share with you some of the awesome projects I’ve found from them so far.
I really ♥ the purl bee
and I hope you enjoy some knitting inspiration from one of my favourite knitting websites!

I’ve managed to make the colorblock hand warmers so far but I want to make all of these! When I was in Australia I found some really beautiful yarn specifically to make the Line Weight Colorblock Hand Warmers, so that will be next… but first thing I’ve started this year is the Bandana Cowl! Learning some new techniques and everything! Love it!

Jade, xo
