It’s no secret that children just have this calling to draw. And sometimes, that calling means that they don’t necessarily draw on paper, but on other objects around your house as well…Walls, pictures, the dog…you name it, if it’s got a surface, they want to draw on it or colour it. As a parent, how many times have you found yourself staring in disbelief at the art that your little one has done or an object that you know will never come clean, ever again?
As the days get a little colder and the nights start drawing in, we’re starting to think about, dare we say it, Christmas! Of course for us, here at LoveKnitting, that means needles at the ready and time to get planning how many socks to knit, what Christmas jumper to make and all the baby outfits we’ll be gifting.
For many, knitting is a time to bond. Time tends to slow down a bit, and the beauty of watching the hands create is mesmerizing and sparks many meaningful conversations. Those who love knitting know that with each and every movement, a memory of what they are creating is being made.

As a child, I can always remember my mum having her Singer sewing machine out to fix our clothes or make something new for us. With her amazing skills, she made the first holy communion dress that my sister and I wore. As well many Christmas and fancy dress costumes over the years. My teachers at my primary school would often ask her to complete projects for plays, activities and such like.
