  • Hello

    I'm Mary, I love all things crafty. Grew up in a very crafty family.

    My main passion is sewing, I have just discovered needle felting (got a kit for my birthday) and I would love to be able to knit but I am hopeless at it. Next on my list of things to learn to do is crochet.

    My crafts keep me sane while looking after my boys

                    The smartest thing I ever did was to purposefully make mistakes on large needles with bulky yarn of a light color, and then pay close attention to how it looks and what I did, and how to fix it. And make notes!

                    I became VERY skilled at "un-knitting" rather than taking it off the needle and pulling it out for a stretch until I got past the "booboo point." Picking up all the stitches was always horrible - so many would slip away before i could get the loop back on the needle. So I also used to practise with nice "picky" wool that would not slip back through itslf...and use a smaller, circular needle to pick up all the stitches if I did take them all off and pull out a row or two.

                        I think if I spent some time on it I could learn, I think I am just too impatient at the moment and it has been a long time since I last had a go. The one thing that scares me about knitting is trying to read the patterns, I just don't understand them (I don't understand sewing patterns either)

                          Hi Mary!

                          I used to do a bit of knitting when I was in my teens and even tried crochet. Didn't get very far with it all though; don't think I even managed to make one thing.
