Coffeegrounds: I can do all thru prayer and coffee

{August 18, 2010}   Getting Knitty with It!

Ok, so since my insane late night of crafty ingeniousness I have been a busy busy girl.  Hobby-wise, knitting is my new love.

My mom taught me a couple years ago, but in the busyness of school and such I made 2 scarves and half a sock in as many years.  A couple months ago, I saw some finished knitting projects of my mom’s and a friend’s and decided to give it another real try…besides, developing a “known” skill is on my goal list this year.  So, I tackled and conquered an old, old project, bought a new knitting book, and went to town.  I am hooked and there is no stopping me!

From July until last night I have completed the following:

1. My first hat: A Kitty Kat Hat  *mew!

2. Kerchief (or as I like to call it, Tony’s Loin Cloth!  NOTE: It was untested for this photo!)

3 and 4.  A garter stitch hat/scarf and a Dino hat for my sweet little Max ^_^

5. An accidently-too-fat rib stitch scarf

6. A snowboard hat for my dear honeyface that I am going add dreadlocks to

7. A “Geeky” wrist band just for pattern practice

and my latest and greatest

8. A sparkly pointed-top hat

I’m getting better as I go and soonish I’ll be tackling my first sweater!  And just so all of you know, every single one of these projects was easy and never before attempted by me!  So, that’s proof that you can do it too!
