Any lessons, good or bad which were learnt during the project processes

I broke my needle!!

Hello fellow knitters/knitting fans,

So I was pretty excited about starting a new project today, seeing as I have a long weekend ahead of me. Now, unfortunately, the pattern required Aran wool but I cannot find nice funky colours in that thickness in Malta, so I decided to get double knitting.

Knitting hurts!

Hello everybody!

I’m quite happy to say that I’m back, although not exactly – the posts will still be fewer compared to when I started this blog.
