  • My first piece of knitting!

    I've got a big cheesy grin on about this because up until Sunday I could only cast on and do garter stitch. I couldn't even cast off so the only thing I've been able to make before now is a never ending scarf Lol.
    The Chick involved lots of increasing and decreasing and of course casting off so I think I've got the hang of those now. The only thing I did struggle with was sewing up the edges. Is there a right or wrong way of stitching through the knitting stitches when you do this?


    This little fella is destined for our spring seasons display when the time comes.

    Awww so cute - but surely he will be a bit lonely? Are you making him some friends?

      He is fab! Well done

      To sew up use mattress stitch, you kind of replicate the way the yarn goes through the knitted stitches so you cant see the seam if you are very good. Google mattress stitch and there is plenty of help, you need diagrams to explain properly!

                  What a lovely little chick. I think it needs some friends or a mother...

                    He's great!! You tube is great for tutorials for things like that - I learn much better of I can see things being done rather than reading about them!

                      Well done you!! Smaller things are usually harder to stitch up than bigger ones. Looks like you have done a very good, neat job.

                      I agree he needs a family though

                        Thanks for all the lovely comments and useful tips everyone. You will all be pleased to know that I do intend to make some more so he won't be lonely. I just need to get my hands on some more yellow yarn. I nicked the last bit from my daughter's "learn to crochet" kit that she got for Christmas!
