I learned to Knit (and other yarn fun)
Here is the beginning of my second knitting project ever. My friend Holly taught me how to knit a dishcloth a long time ago, but I had forgotten everything she taught me. After reading the instructions in 2 books, I finally had to go to youtube.com to watch this video! This yarn was just left over in my stash, so I decided to make a scarf. Although, after knitting several rows, I realized that it will be too wide for a scarf, and I will run out of yarn way before I hit that point anyway. So, it will become a hat, unless my yarn runs out too early, then it may become a very small doll blanket, or a doll hat. Speaking of baby hats, here is a white one I crocheted. It was supposed to be for Rebekah, but seeing as the yarn also was a left over in my stash, it became a baby hat! It needs a pom pom, but I'm all out of white.
Here is a purple shawl I am still crocheting for Rebekah. I bought purple flower buttons so it will stay on her. I think it will be adorable with a white long sleeve shirt under it, and her teal and purple skirt that I made for her!
Lastly, with all this crocheting and knitting going on, my son was feeling left out. He begged me to teach him to do some "sewing", so I bought some plastic canvas today and helped him make a bookmark. (All I did was tie the knots so he could sew) Here it is:
