Oh Balls!

Sooo… I knitted well before it was cool, i just didn’t do anything about it.

And now i realise that the most of the world is knitting not the same way as i am – i.e. – wrong, so i decided it is to share my side of the story.

It might sound funny, but i learnt to knit in Latvian. I was very young and my grandma was the one that taught me how to knit. She’s been knitting ever since i can remember, she’s epic. She didn’t teach me technique names or terms, i just knitted.

Then we all had to do knitting at school. Like every year, almost, for the first few years. Had to do mittens, socks, jumper… I was lazy and at the time i thought knitting was stupid so my grandma ended up finishing all my projects so i’d get a good grade. I feel stupid now, like i wasted a million tons of opportunities and knowledge.

Years later i realised that knitting is cool and i want to know more and be able to do more. That is when i realised that someone has tried their best to confuse the shit out of people who would like to get into knitting or just refresh their memory and learn something new and cool.

From the beginning, my knitting career was always based on a just do it attitude. I learnt to knit without any fancy names for things or techniques. Knitting was knitting and that was it. When i first saw a knitting pattern in English, i thought that was a secret spy code. For whatever reasons, most knitting out there is made too complicated.

I’m lazy, i cannot be arsed to live a complicated life and do a complicated knitting so i thought i’d try and show a simple side of the knitting. From beginning till end – tutorials and finished projects, want to share all.

  1. That is so true!! I love that everyone, who had a grandma or knitting mom, gave assignments to them.
    I do like knitting, especially if it is easy! This one time I thought I might try to search for something more interesting on the web and I realized that everyone else knits differently, so either you watch videos and follow whatever it is that they do or just stick to whatever you do!
