Last year I joined a knitting group at John Lewis in Kingston. It meets every Tuesday morning and is a lovely break from both work and housework. Most of the knitters are very accomplished and they turn out exquisite things. I plod along with my projects hoping to improve my skills. My first project was this Aran-style throw, called a Twisted Cable Throw. It’s from the Lion Brand Yarn site and can be found in the archives. It took me six months to make, but I think it was worth it. It’s so cosy, particularly today as it’s snowing outside.
