Lately, I've Been Knitting

Yeah, knitting has become more than a hobby. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to finally find something that I'm good at and I like. Yes, I said it: I'm good at this. You don't know me that well but just believe me when I say that I would have never admitted to being good at something, whether I thought I was or not. And if I did admit it, I would qualify it with "I'm pretty good" or "I'm OK at" or "I do OK but there's a lot I can't do." Pfffft. Enough of that.

So, here are a few of the things I've completed lately:

Cosette really wants to sit on the Modern Log Cabin Baby Blanket

Prayer Shawl

Fingerless Mittens (Christmas gifts this year!)

First attempt at Fair Isle

And the infamous (in the knitting world) clapotis pictures are on their way. Now, onto the next project! Or maybe I'll go back to one of the many I have already started. Choices, choices.

Wow! You ARE good! I like to knit, but can only do 'straight stuff'-- blankets, scarves, and then there's blankets and scarves :)!

I need fingerless mittens
and I want a prayer shawl - that one actually :)
oh yes, and a baby blankie

hugs to Cossette

You know, my mom has been attempting to teach me to knit again. After ripping it out and starting over so many times I've had to toss the yarn, I have about 5 inches of wonky scarf.

I'm fairly certain that I will never, ever get even close to what you do! You definetly have a talent! (I think the idea of opening an Etsy shop is brillant)

You guys are too nice! If I ever get a chance to knit something other than a gift, I might. I need another pair of hands!
