Come Autumn/winter I can think of nothing better than curling up on the sofa  with a new knitting project.

It’s just so relaxing and theraputic.

I was introduced to knitting with these chunky needles and chunky yarn at Toft  a local arts and crafts store in Warwickshire.

Knitting on a larger scale is perfect for beginners and those with limited time as you see results so quickly.

I used 10mm circular needles for cushion covers using a basic garter (knit) stitch and 20mm circular needles with chunky yarn for blankets using moss stitch.

At first it seems strange working with such large needles and chunky wool but you soon get used to it. I’ve even  heard of fashion students using rolling pins to knit with!
