Are you suprised by the Title of my post today ? Well, Dont be. You got me right, I am going to write about knitting today.


I have a memory that i used to knit when i was a small kid, dont remember the right age too. I used to look at a knitted piece with awe, and wondered how beautiful a cloth is made out of a mere strand of wool ….. !!!!!.Can i make it too ??? That was enough motivation for a small kid (thats me), hence i started to knit with the help of my mother. It wasnt very easy as i used to get easily hurt by the pointed needles and made a lot of mistakes. My mother was very patient with me though ………………. 🙂

As i grew, i got caught in different complicated webs of life, My studies (my schedule was very hectic, i used to spend only 7-8 hours at home = sleep time) and stuff and really forgot about wool,needles and knitting. Some days back while i was surfing the net i came across a knitted scarf and my heart went out for it, It was so beautiful. The very next moment, a thought crossed my mind – Why not, Let me try again. I got up and started searching stores here where i can find the equipment (yup, thats what i call it) . Everything went in vain, Then i got an idea. I posted a question on Yahoo Answers, I tell you its the best place to find answers for almost anything. It saved me a lot of time many times earlier and it did the same this time too. Am i sounding as if i am promoting Yahoo Answers ????


 Well, I got the names of stores, for your knowledge they are – Micheals and Wall-Mart, I advice Micheals, Its a world of YARN out there. I bought the needles and the yarn and started knitting. …. 🙂 I actually did not start knitting, I practiced a bit. Once i started my hand got into the rhythm and i picked up a good speed. I started with basic knit and purl stiches and now know a wide variety of stiches.

I knitted a dishcloth,(it turned out well) and now am planning to knit a scarf for myself inshallah. I will be posting different patterns and stiches in my near future posts. So, anybody out there who loves knitting like i do ?????

Happy Knitting

YAYYYYYY a knitting post 😀 Okay I’m gonna have to learn from you! that pink yarn looks so darn cute!!! xxxx

As Salaamu Aalaikum:

I totally understand what it means to have to change your schedule due to work load which then limits your hobbies. I never learned how to knit but stitching was an all time favorite of mine and I don’t do it as much but I hope to return to this someday.
Anyway, do post your knitting pictures and I hope to get some inspiration from you.

Happy knitting to you,


maryam I love knitting ! I learned knitting as well just the basic principle , then later on I am intrested in crochet which I think is so cool , making those funky cardigans . I just dont have time to knit , so why your free do it , I say go for it , once you learn it , your fingers get used to it , and you get fast at it .

Good girl!…another way to show your creativity…good work 🙂

Oh wow sounds great.

My mom was so good at knitting, I tried many times but couldn’t go beyond basic knit. You can maybe then try the magazines with detailed knitting overviews of designs like after 4 boxes do this and blah blah 🙂

Your post feels like home =)
