Long Forgotten

I started knitting many years ago  now, 3… 4… I’m not really sure.  Over these years I have knitted a lot.  Most of of it was rubbish, some not so rubbish and much of it was given away as presents to friends and family.  The sad thing is I never documented any of it.  All those head bands, scarves, hats and even a jumper!!  To be honest I can’t even remember most of it, and it would probably be embarrassing to see how badly made it all was but, I did knit almost every Christmas present this year and didn’t photograph ANY of it because I was still finishing most of them off on Christmas eve.  What a pleb.  However, on my trip to London this week I was staying with my friends Anna and Richard and lo and behold curled up on the sofa, watching the Mary Berry documentary (gotta love The Berry!) with me and Anna were these well worn woolly specimens…
