Here’s my knitting journey update with Knit & Stitch Creative…
It has been about three weeks now since I embarked on learning how to knit for the very first time. In case you didn’t see my very first go at knitting (and to prove that I had never ever knitted before in my entire life) – here is the evidence:
Yup – it looks pretty bad – but hey – everyone has to start somewhere right! So even though I’ve been extremely slow, my knitting has come a very long way in a very short time.
I knit in bed at night as a way to ‘turn off my brain’ and relax. I keep my phone on my lap with me because the CreaCrafts website has the instructional videos on all the stitches – so I can watch them – frame by frame when starting a new square.
And this is where I’m up to so far! A huge improvement already on the sad looking little piece of knitting I started with! BUT – this is where I intend to get to – this AMAZING rug! Isn’t it simply gorgeous!
So for anyone that wants to start out knitting, or you think you can knit better than I can (which is the entire world lol) – I highly recommend grabbing the Knit & Stitch Creative Collection!
They have amazing step by step videos on stitches, small projects and bonus patterns. How it Works: You remember those TV ads that had a new magazine every week with a free gift? Well, this is exactly the same! It is in newsagents across the country from the 4th June and via subscription delivered to your home, and if you aren’t a beginner like I am, you can even choose which issue you want to start with. The dedicated website is here www.creacrafts.com.au – There are 80 issues all up, so you will never get bored, with new and wonderful projects to expand your knitting-prowess, plus you can make a beautiful double-sided throw! There is no obligation to complete and you can cancel any time. Every month you pay for four issues (one per week).
There are two subscription models, the basic and the premium. The introductory offer is issue 1, 2 and 3 for $1.99 when you subscribe as a Stay at Home Mum follower, using code “CREA” (issue 2 and 3 is completely FREE!) Then 4 issues will be delivered monthly from issue 4.
