Hello fellow knitters. I am Janis, l live in UK, and have recently come back to crafting. My crafts include crochet, jewellery making, fabric art and embriodary, and of course, knitting. I am a member of a knitters and natters group which meets up once or twice a week. For those readers not from the UK, nattering is a ‘talking’. My husband calls us ‘knitting nana’s group’. Well, truthfully, l’m old enough to be a granny but am not actually one. Lol. I have a few projects on the go, depending on how l feel. My favourite right now is an afghan rug from scraps. However, the needles are small guage and sharp which puncture my finger pads, so i’m sporting some Michael Jaskson style sticking plasters. Actually, its paper tape, with which you can make a stiff thimbal shaped dressing to protect the finger pads from soreness, and you can throw them away when they get grubby or its time for tea. Its very effective, and doesnt seem to slow me down any.
