Do you remember me telling you a while ago about my big sister? She used to knit a lot, and did some beautiful work. But time, and life, and a lack of good knitting patterns got in the way, and it’s been a long, long time since she knitted anything much. So I’ve been trying to get her back into it. If there’s one thing more satisfying than getting a non-knitter to start knitting, it’s getting a lapsed knitter back into it. I’ve been extolling the virtues of knitting, and that must have worked, cos she went as far as buying some yarn and picking out a pattern. It was a really pretty baby cardigan, but it had quite an advanced construction, knitted in one piece, and fancy cast ons, and all sorts of stuff she’d never come across in a pattern before, and I think it’s put her right off. So, I want you to help me persuade her to give knitting another try. Either by telling her why you love to knit, or by pointing her towards a really great pattern. Because the world needs one more knitter, don’t you agree?
(Oh, and if you bought yarn in this week’s sale, it went out in the post yesterday, so you should have it very soon!)
