Give Me All The Crafts Please

Give Me All The Crafts Please

I learned how to knit! Well actually, my mom taught me the basics when I was a kid (it didn't stick), and then my friend Cathy (she just opened a spinning pop-up shop in my fave yarn store) taught me again while I was pregnant but now I am really actually knitting! 

It has been pointed out to me by a few people lately that I apparently have a reputation for being able to pick up new skills quite quickly. I feel like this makes me sound kind of obnoxious? Especially because the reality involves me sometimes throwing the knitting across the room in a fit of rage. It makes me feel like maybe I should pretend to be bad at things so that people don't hate me. But I can't do that because I want to love what I am making, even though everything I have knitted so far has had huge chunks ripped out or is just living with it's flaws (Molly doesn't care if I knitted when I should have purled!)

This picture above is the 'Bloomsbury Kids' Pullover pattern. I knit the one year size so it's still a bit big on her (she is 6.5 Months old). Here is the link to my Ravelry Project (you need a ravelry account to see it): Molly's 12 Month Old Bloomsbury Sweater.

This is Molly's 9 Month Old Christmas Sweater. Again, slightly large because it's meant to fit closer to Christmas. My first time knitting cables, to get that tree on the front!

This sweater is the 'Granny's Favourite' Cardigan which was my first sweater! I made it in copy of the cutie pie yellow one that my friend Kate made for Molly when she was first born. 

I have two other projects on the go right now, too... a 1-2 year old cardigan for Molly featuring goldfish and a full sized yellow cardigan for myself! I am also planning on making up some Virginia Leggings this week (because I am teaching a class on it on Sunday at Needlework)

I am hoping you guys are into all this knitting because I just like sharing the things I am making on the blog, and right now it's ALL knitting, ALL the time!
