First Successful Hat!

I just finished my first successful hat! Jesse is sleeping, but I hope he likes it. I used the pattern from the SnB Happy Hooker – Crochet book – for the “boy beanie”. It’s grey with green stripes. I’m going to try it on him once he wakes up and will take photos then!

Then, I try it on Bailey and if she likes it, make her a girly version!

This is about the 15th time I’ve tried to make a hat. The other pattern I hat, just didn’t work for me for some reason. I think this one worked because it was DC instead of SC. I love doing DC!

I hate to put up in progress photos like some folks do, because a lot of times I have to frog it so many times it’s not even worth sharing.

knitting, and more knitting, and more knitting!

I’ve started working on a shawl for the freezing days at work! It feels like I’ve been knitting this forever and ever! I’m close to the end of the ball of yarn and then I discovered another ball! I’ll have to decide if I want to keep going once I finish.

I’m also working on making bailey belt out of this really cool bamboo yarn I picked up off the clearance rack at joann’s!

My First Knitted object!

Oddly enough, I learned to knit when I was on vacation over the weekend. I coaxed my husband to take me to the yarn store in Blue Ridge, GA to buy some more yarn for crocheting and the lady said she’d show my daughter how to knit. The next day, DH dropped us off and I learned how to knit while DD swept the floors and straightened up the magazines! She got bored of learning how to knit really quickly.

So, I learned how. I finished my first knitted object this morning. It was going to be a scarf, but I got bored and decided to make it an ipod/blackberry cozy.

Check it out!
