A beginner's trials and errors in the complex world of yarn and pointy sticks
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
I knitted this hat for my friend Amanda who is going on to school, and better things I hope. I will certainly miss her. I know I will miss that hat. I tried it on and it fit so nicely. It was another one I did with the 'moss' stitch as brim instead of 1p1k rib stitch. I can't keep them all, that's for sure.
I experimented with some very BIG yarn I have. Meh.
I also have yarn my friend from work brought for the dishcloths. So I might better start learning how to make those...and here is my mind set in that regard...people make those when they are learning to knit. Ought to be a piece of cake. And I may learn something to help me now! We shall see. At any rate, I have things I need to do (Finish that baby blanket, as well.....so uninspired. SO UNINSPIRED. Like i know it can't turn out well at this point and I am just prolonging the inevitable.) I also whipped up a hat from some thick, terry cloth like yarn I got a long time ago. I need to take a pic of that and I think I will!
As a last ditch attempt to quit smoking, I took up knitting. I have worked very hard to remain smoke free and have made hats for everyone I know. It's been back and forth and up and down. But I keep knitting.
I am a knitter who is still learning. I am married, 30 years, very involved in family and friends and my animals, which number only 3 now, two dogs, a cat. My cat is inherited, but no less loved for that, and my dogs are spoiled and demanding. They are pretty much the reason I get up in the morning and hold a job. In addition to knitting, I sew, design costumes, read history, watch lots of TV and enjoy target practice with my Ruger 380 and Glock 22c.
