The challenges of knitting

Victoria Logan-Berg

So I promised myself I would blog more this year as I took far too much time off in 2015, (mainly due to the fact I was planning my wedding and pretty much everything non essential got forgotten...) and it is now the end of April and this is only my second post, so huge apologies, I promise to write more about my knitting adventures on a more regular basis. So on to the subject of this blog post!

I decided 2016 would be the year I try new things in knitting, and set myself a couple of challenges:

  • learn how to knit socks
  • do some knitwear knitting on the passap
  • come up with new products for winter 2016

So the final point is fairly easy, I have loads of new product ideas, too many actually, so I plan on only introducing a couple of new products and maybe phasing out some old ones. The more tricky challenges are the learning new knitting skills. Now I love knitting, and I love challenges, and decided the best way to learn how to knit socks is to hand kit them first, then try them on the machine. And now I have a problem, I chose super fine wool, and I'm not the fastest knitter, I'm so used to machine knitting I forgot how slow hand knitting is in comparison! plus I have barely anytime to actually knit (the joys of working a part time job alongside).

So my big challenge this year has turned into will I actually finish my hand knitted sock before the end of the year? I shall keep you updated along with all my new designs, products and ideas. And I really do promise to blog more!
