I’m bamboo

What kind of knitting needles are you?



You are bamboo.Warm, cozy, and thoughtful, you take your time and enjoy how things feel, smell, and taste. You love the craft and beauty of traditional things, and you value the comfort and experience of knitting as much as the results. But while you are reveling in your warm cozies, don’t get stuck. Warm is wonderful, but so is the whole wide world!

Octopus, Octopus, Why are you a scarf?

“I want to be Bob Dylan
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
When everybody loves you, son,
that’s just about as funky as you can be”

– Counting Crows, Mr. Jones

I think this is fairly funky, at least the pattern. Hope my scarf partner loves ocean life, because an octopus will be heading that way…

Funky scarf swap finished!

A long scarf that drapes quite well but looks great wrapped around your neck, as the scribble monster demonstrates.

Three hats in one evening

A good sense of accomplishment for today…. I crocheted 1 hat for my swap, 1 for my daughter that matches her poncho and knitted (partially on my barbie knitting machine and partially on DPNS) a tiny hat for a stuffed cat.

Photos tomorrow. It’s too late for them tonight.

Hopefully Bailey likes the new hat. If she’s not careful, Jesse might steal it….

UPDATE: Here’s the hat for the swap….

Bailey's new hat!

Bailey can’t find her hat. LOL!

Knitting Adventurer

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Adventurer. You are through those knitting growing pains and feeling more adventurous. You can follow a standard pattern if it’s not too complicated and know where to go to get help. Maybe you’ve started to experiment with different fibers and you might be eyeing a book with a cool technique you’ve never tried. Perhaps you prefer to stick to other people’s patterns but you are trying to challenge yourself more. Regardless of your preference, you are continually trying to grow as a knitter, and as well you should since your non-knitting friends are probably dropping some serious hints, these days.http://marniemaclean.com
