I have been knitting since I was a child having learned from my mother who was very interested in all things crafty. Once you master the basics there is so much you can make – for example- scarves, hats and blankets. I hope you enjoy the course and and come to love and enjoy knitting as I do – there is no doubt that knitting is undergoing a revival at the moment and for me it was great to have such an interest during Covid lockdown.
