I have been keeping a secret.
Okay, not from the world, I just haven’t brought it out into the blogosphere yet.
In the past few months, I’ve been inspired take a break from trying to impose the mandatory hour of writing. As a result, I turned to other things, including:
A couple of months back, when I’d bought 2 GB of data on my phone and didn’t know what to do in order to use up the last GB, I logged onto youtube and watched some origami tutorials. One of these was the corner bookmark.
After that, I just had to make a bunch of them. With custom designs on the back. ^_^
My love for knitting and crocheting came back when I realised I was bored out of my head and I had someone who could help me out if I made mistakes. It took me a week to master long-tail cast on (if you know what that is), a couple of days to master the knit stitch and another week to master the purl stitch.*
These look the same, but they are actually reverse stitches of each other.
And, I’ve started on my first actual project!
It’s a ribbed scarf in a beautiful shade of purple, although at this stage I’m not completely sure if I’ll do the entire thing on one color. Or if I can even do it in one color, considering if I run out of yarn it might be hard to find the same shade again. Maybe I’ll include a colour that’s a good contrast.
*If you don’t know what knit stitches and purl stitches or even casting on is, a simple google search would quench your curiosity.
