Hello and Welcome to Along The Avenue!
I’ve been knitting and crocheting for around 4 years now. I taught myself using Youtube. Before that I used to do cross stitch and still do from time to time. I love searching through Ravelry, Google Images and Flickr to see other people’s creations which often leads to me losing interest in my current makes, leaving me with several WIPs!
I prefer making toys and blankets, rather than clothes after I spent several weeks lovingly knitting the February sweater which looked fantastic until I tried it on and has been hidden in a drawer ever since! Here is an elephant I knitted earlier in the year from a pattern on Ravelry for a friend’s baby:
This year I’m really keen to knit some Christmas decorations this and already have some sparkly red and white wool in my stash. My SIL is also expecting a baby girl in January so I’m planning a blanket and toy for her too.
