It's been at the back of my mind for a while, I'd like to learn to knit! Well, I can do a mean garter stitch and even a stocking, and maybe a rib, but I have cardigan ambitions! Readicut are putting together a new catalogue and I'm a little inspired, just need to decide what, which yarn, and importantly, when! Still, it's too hot to think of cardis at the moment. But any advice foe a nearly-new beginner would be gratefully received!

I've been experimenting with smocking, trying things other than cushion covers! And I came up with this! There's about 2 hours solid work on the smocked area, and I wasn't sure about the spots but they really work and give a modern look to the technique. This design in called 'waves'... I think you can tell why!
