I rekindled my love of knitting when I heard I was to become a nana! I knitted lots of things when my kids were little, especially the Phildar range which were a little bit unusual when my boys were small.
Now I tend to go towards the independent designers and love the merino wools.
I need to learn how to knit in the round, only ever tried once and it wasn't pretty. And I've never even heard of many of the techniques listed below!!
I work with a lot of women who have babies, and I've found it so much more satisfying to give a little cardigan that I've knitted rather than a shop bought gift.
