Hi, I’m Teresa and am thrilled to be a part of the Bernat blog! I’ve been knitting off and on since I was about 13, and have also dabbled in crochet, cross stitch, quilting, and embroidery. Knitting, however, is my first love and I keep coming back to those pointy sticks.
I’m about to delve into my first project for Bernat and have to admit something: I hate to knit test swatches. I hate it, hate it, hate it. In fact, I usually skip it, which results in either a perfectly gauged knitted item or a wonky, poorly knitted one that I end up tearing out and restarting with different size needles until it knits out properly – or good enough. But this time, I swatched. And I think it turned out pretty nicely, no?
This is a project using the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Twists in Rose Twists. Stay tuned to hear more and see my progress!
