Today I have mastered knitting by the magic loop method. Well, I say mastered, what I mean is I understand now how to do it. I don't really like using dpn's when knitting as I find they leave a gap at the joins - that's my experience of knitting with them anyway - I just can't seem to close those gaps. So I decided to try and do it with a circular needle as I have seen this done and it looks a lot neater.
I found this tutorial worked for me so can now knit in the round on just a few stitches rather than having to switch to dpn's.
Other than this on the knitting front, today I have sewn up a couple of little baby rabbits I knitted squares yesterday for, over the weekend I knitted and sewed a couple of chicks and a hen. A cockerel was been requested too.
I'm off to my Spinning evening tonight to learn to spin flax into lovely linen yarn. On the drive there we go through a lot of nice countryside and over one island that has been named by Imogen as "rabbit island" - in the Summer months last year we saw many rabbits there so it is a landmark on the journey. We shall be looking out for them tonight as we sighted a couple last time I went for my spinning lesson a fortnight ago. Hence the bunnies being knitted for today.
