Moving to Edinburgh last year – a new city to me with only a few familiar faces – gave me the time to revive my passion for knitting.

This time however, I decided that my return-foray must go beyond scarfs, belts, bag straps and other rectangular creations….

With the aid of my fantastic new-found mentor Ravelry and numerous youTube searches, I began to learn new stitches, read patterns, use more than 2 needles at a time and become acquainted with circular needles, stitch markers, cable needles; tools that I had never come across before.

Hannah Smith Knits will now document my adventures and progress in the addictive world of knitting. All knit projects can be found here and miscellaneous craft projects here.

If you’d like to follow or contact me please do, I’d love to hear from you.
