I Made This!

One of the many things I love about knitting and crocheting (besides that it calms me down) is that I can make something that is functional.

I’ve knit socks,

I look like Punky Brewster today.

and baby clothes.

Baby britches!

To have someone remark on something I’m wearing and be able to say, “I made that,” is a great feeling!

My first crochet project is a blanket. I don’t know how large it will be, but I’m hoping I’ll have it finished in time for Christmas!


Adventures in Knitting

I’ll admit it: I’m more adventurous in my knitting projects than I am in real life.

When I first started knitting and I got frustrated about a stitch I didn’t understand, there was a lot of cursing involved. Now I welcome the challenge.

Below are some projects I’ve worked on and am pleased with the end results:

Project 1

Simple yet elegant

Project 2

I love this hat!

Project 3

Lots of Lace

Project 4

My first baby garment

Project 5


When I look back on what I’ve knit, I’m proud. I love the way a pattern comes together. Even if I make a mistake, I’m still happy with the results.

I’m so glad I found knitting. Using the pointy sticks keeps me calm.
