The Knitting Bug

Sometimes I go through phases of reading, scrapbooking, or doing some other craft in my spare time. Lately, I have been doing a little bit of knitting. One of Robyn's teachers asked Robyn to teach her how to knit. Mrs. V has some friends who are knitting hats to donate to cancer patients and she wanted to make some as well. I thought it sounded like a fun project for me. As usual, I did a lot of buying of supplies before starting the actual project. Today, I finished my first hat. Those who are knitters can probably see every flaw (and believe me it is flawed), but I was excited it turned out looking like what it was supposed to be...a hat.

Cara is modeling my creation. She likes to have me take pictures of the back of her head (that is a whole other topic). It was fun to make the hat and I already have my yarn ready for the next one. This time, I will attempt to use circular needles. Robyn will try to teach this old dog a new trick.

It looks great from here! I learned a long time ago to not point out your mistakes when you create something--most people don't even notice and it just belittles your work. Yeah, I make lots of mistakes too, but never point them out!

Wonderful! You are very ambitious to make this project- go you! Circular needles really aren't so bad, you'll be fine! I actually think they're much more comfortable to use once you get used to them than the bulky long needles.
