This post is long overdue. It’s been almost a year since I decided to finally take the leap and learn how to knit. I love cross stitching and I knew that one day I wanted to learn how to knit as well. I asked my Grandma to teach me and she willingly obliged. After her little lesson, I took to youtube and watched many many tutorial videos.
I have made a few little projects and am getting more and more comfortable as I go along. My first big finish was a sleep sack for Ezri. My friend, who I taught to knit after I learned, made up a pattern for me and I started knitting. It was a great project and I hope the sleep sack will fit Ezri this winter. She wore it a little bit last winter, but not for very long.
My current knitting project is a bunny blanket and I LOVE it so far. The yarn I chose is super soft and it will be nice and cozy for anyone to curl up under. I am about half way through the blanket, but I have temporarily put it aside. I plan to pick it up again and keep going on it, but I just have too many things on the go right now! So many crafts and so little time!
In the last few months, I’ve also developed an interest in crochet. I didn’t actually buckle down to learn until about a week ago. I found a pattern that I wanted to make and I just couldn’t get it out of my head. After all, did I really need MORE projects on my list of things to do?! Well I guess I did because I started watching some videos on youtube and have since completed THREE crochet projects in the past week. Again, just like knitting, I am getting faster and more comfortable the more I stitch. I have completed a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse beanie. They are our baby when he/she arrives for newborn photos. As we don’t know what we are having, I made both Minnie & Mickey.
I’ve also completed a crochet Candy Corn Halloween treat bag for Ezri for when we go to Disneyland in 2 weeks. I gave it to her and of course the first thing she did was put it on her head. HAHA, it was so cute. But I am sure she will figure it out as soon as someone puts candy in it for her!
I am going to try to get back to my cross stitching for the next couple weeks as I feel I’ve been neglected my first crafting love!
