A peek at the other hobby...

So, I've been knitting for a few months now and I love it so much. It's so relaxing and having the finished product to wear or give just makes me happy and fulfilled. Lots of people have asked to see some of my stuff and I finally broke down and took a couple of pictures. This is a simple project - haven't ventured out too much beyond scarves and bags and hats and such...I do have my first sweater on my needles now though so *hopefully* I'll have that to share here (I'm not guaranteeing anything though :p)

Jake asked me for a scarf so this will go into his Christmas stocking (the whole exchange from me to Santa could be tricky but I'm determined to make it work ;) A simple cabled pattern but I'm excited to see him wear it - he's been very excited since I started on it. Maybe I'll be able to whip up a matching hat before Sunday as well!

So, anyway, there you go. This is what has taken up my spare scrapbooking time as of late. I've whittled my in-progress projects from like 6 down to 2 so I'm proud of myself and ready to get started on something else!

  2. wow!
    simple? i think not.
    the cable stitch alone is complicated. i took a knitting
    class before sean was born and
    made him a sweater. i didn't
    know what i was having at the time, so it is a little feminine looking--he only wore it once ;)
    i would love to take up knitting again.
    once again, i wish we lived near each other...we'd have so much fun!

  4. yet another reason to heart you. I have been knitting for just a little over a year, and made a whole slew of gifts this year. I haven't tried cables yet. I'm afraid!
    I love making bags.

  6. You should go to Kent, Shannon's friend's blog. She's a scrapbooker and a knitter. I'm always amazed at what she does!
