Getting the blog up and running

Well, I thought it was probably a good idea to start a little bit of a blog about my knitting exploits.

I'm currently surfing Ravelry one of the best sites I have been introduced to in a long time! Althought at this stage I seem to be finding more things to make, rather than actually knitting...

But then that could have something to do with the weather too!! I always seem to get really into the knitting over summer... You would think that the 35 degree heat would really put me off!!

Anyway, I suppose I should put a bit about me in here!

I am 24, although don't let me age fool you. Not to sound conceited, but there isn't a pattern I can't do! I have been knitting since my mother taught me at age 6 - and I haven't stopped! I have entered craft competitions and come out as "Champion"... sounds a bit like I'm blowing my own horn doesn't it!!

Well, anyway, I have taught a few of my friends how to knit (among other things) and I love having our little 'crafty' days :)

Anyway, I started out making the usual things that a child makes... tea cosies!! lol I then started making bags, mittens, oddly shaped dolls and then when I hit about 14 I discovered Jean Greenhowe and began knitting dolls like crazy!! After a while I realised that I had no idea what to do with all the dolls as they were building up and decided to start knitting more 'practical' things... such as clothes... for babies, children and adults!

So here I am, surrounded by wool, needles, patterns and many ideas!

What to do next!
