Two new additions to my trunk of knit goodies.The hat with the brim should have come out a bit bigger to look more like an old style cap.

Some fun friends to have around.

Trying to make a pair of half finger gloves to go with the flap ear hat. The instructions are not working! I'm going to check with some of the ladies at my weaving guild to see if anyone has any ideas.

I was experimenting with yarn and pattern. I think I may give this to my youngest daughter as she rides a bike as her transportation even in the winter.

Sock it to Me

I just began knitting about a year ago. For many years I tried to teach my self and always ended up with knots. So finally one day I went out an purchased an instruction book written for children and whala !! I can knit. I did start with something easy, like a scarf. But not for long. I wanted to knit socks! So I found a book and went for it. It wasn't long before I found myself once again mired in knitting terms and unclear descriptions of what I was supposed to do. So this time I began a hunt on the internet for instructions. To my great joy I stumbled on one sight that had very clear directions and low and! Not the kind of pictures that look like a near sighted baboon took but close up and very clear pictures. In no time at all I had my first pair of socks. I loved them. They were warm and soft and cute and now every one in my family wanted a pair. So now I'm knitting socks and more socks. I've been using my wooden DPNs so much that they have a curve in them. Then yesterday one broke! Quick trip to the local store and now I have 7 size 2 DPNs. Well at lest I have back up.
