I am not a "natural knitter" but I do love the rhythm and soul soothing nature of the craft. I adore sheep's roving, spun and turned into yarn. I love the colours and the feel of it. I sometimes think I would be quite happy to just knit and knit giant squares ( but my elbows would protest I am sure!).
This is why I am loving the Hitchhiker Shawl pattern available on Ravelry. It is well worth the money and if I can do it anyone can! I love using this self striping yarn and the effects it creates keep it quite interesting and surprising. It isn't a hard pattern at all and is great if you really are not a "pro knitter" like me and enjoy dabbling now and again. If you are intrigued by the name of this pattern then check out the wonderful designer's story behind it on Ravelry.
|my first attempt smaller due to heavier wool love it though!|
