I've suddenly rediscovered my love of knitting and just this month of December, I've finished about 9 projects (wristwarmers, hats, gloves and a scarf).
I made a pair of wrist warmers with some grey yarn I've had for about 8 years and loved them 'cause I happened to see mention of wrist warmers during some random surfing. So, I made another pair...then I made my first pair of socks...and I'm looking for more stuff to make.
I learned how to crochet and then to knit while i lived in Mexico during my teens. I crocheted doilies and other things that were all the rage at the time. Then I got into knitting. I did a few things, but never finished any big project. I found that knitting smaller things made me happy because I could actually finish them fairly quickly. So, I made baby booties and barbie clothes. I also learned how to knit on a manual, mechanical knitting machine. I actually made a mini-dress. um...not something i would wear these days though! I visited a real yarn store for the first time on
[ NOTE: I'm going to be posting all my current knitting stuff here, backdating to the dates I posted them originally. I'll get this bad boy organized eventually!]
