I finally managed to knit again! No, I haven't injured or lost a hand or anything serious, I was just going through a knitting slump! Nothing inspired me, I hated knitting what I was knitting and felt sad at the loss of a relaxation tool. Perhaps I just needed a good reason to knit. I had been enjoying the embroidery and it continues but on Monday evening I started knitting - just a small thing - I decided to knit a bowl - knit and then felt a bowl. I used a pattern from One Skein and it did just look like a big hat when I had finished (and guess who forgot to take a photo of it pre-felting). Last night I stuck it in the washing machine at 60 with a big towel and an hour later I had a bowl! It was pretty impressive. It never fails to surprise me what a trip through the washing machine can do!!
