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.

scarves,

hats,

Lee’s Jayne hat

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.

My first scarf

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

Brainmonster!

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.
