A pot pourri of birth-related knitting resources

germs1There’s something about the change of weather in the Autumn that makes me want to shift from quilting – my spring, summer and travel craft – to knitting. I don’t know if it’s the cold, or the changing colours of the leaves, or maybe the happy thought of adding to our tiny knitted snowmen and santa collection that does it, but I often feel the same urge at this time of the year. This year, though, I made a craft resolution to finish some UFOs – or unfinished objects, for those who don’t ‘do’ crafter jargon – so I was enthused and dismayed in equal measure when one of my lovely midwife friends taught me a new way to knit squares on a recent trip. Now I have another soon-to-be-unfinished project calling for my attention!

So just in case anyone else feels the same kind of urge, here is a nice relaxing post that I have been meaning to gather together for a while … all of the knitting resources on my site, handily popped into one post so that they’re more searchable. That way, I can keep it updated more easily and you’ll have an easy way to find things that I’ve written on knitting and birth 😀
