Yesterday I wrote about the fact that I need to find a new hobby. I also mentioned that knitting was something that I’m currently quite keen to try, so last night I thought ‘Why not?’
I’ve got a day off today as I worked on Saturday, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to head out to Spotlight to see if I could find myself some sort of starter kit for knitting. I walked straight to the knitting section and wow.. they have a lot of yarn.
I started looking at the different types and colours and I felt a little bit lost. How am I supposed to know what to start with? I walked up to the lady at the counter and she said that unfortunately they don’t have any starter packs or anything like that, but she recommended that I pick up a few 8 ply balls of yarn and a pack of 4mm knitting needles.
She mentioned that they have knitting books that you can buy, but she said I’m probably better off finding that stuff on the internet these days. I love it when they are realistic about that sort of stuff and don’t try to sell you things just for the hell of it!
So now I’m at home and I’m not too sure what to do next. I’m thinking it might be best to start with something easy, like a scarf or blanket or something. I might hit up Pinterest to see if I can find something useful, otherwise I guess I’ll have to resort to the good ol’ Google.
Wish me luck guys!
