Back on the needles

Oh, it has been so long since I knit anything.  But I enjoy knitting so I made a resolution that I just had to start again.  A very dear friend gave me a rather generous gift voucher to the Bendigo Woollen Mills, so I used some of the voucher to buy 3 balls of Moorland (67% wool, 33% alpaca) in Storm Blue.  It is a lovely variegated yarn that knits up quite firm, but soft.

It has been a while since I knit so I need a project that requires (hopefully!) minimal effort for maximum output.  So I decided to knit myself a 'Greenfield Cardigan' from the book 'New England Knits' (a book I received for Christmas a couple of years ago).  It is knit in garter stitch on circular needles (I started on straights until I bought some more circulars a couple of days ago - there is a UFO on the 4mm circulars I already have so I needed more...!).

Have you been reinvigorated by something lately?


  1. I've slowed down on the knitting front, too. I'm not sure why, but I wish I could be more enthusiastic about picking up the sticks again.

    Love New England Knits! And what a beautiful color choice you have there! Can't wait to watch the progress you make!

  2. Oh dear, since taking those photos (which was a couple of days before posting them), I haven't knit a stitch!
