My first project is going to be a pointy toboggan kind of hat...no, not for some cute, sweet baby...for me!
My teacher is Monica. She is knowledgable, patient and talented. She is the mother of one of my all time favorite students...Cozette, whom I call Cozetticus!
I picked the pattern and gathered my supplies...oh, yeah, had to join ravelry, too.
I didn't know about the yarn store when I bought these supplies so I had to go to Michael's. No one there was very helpful, so I lurked about in the yarn aisle until an unsuspecting knitter showed up...she was very helpful!
Look at those little fingers and needles do their thing...their knitting thing!
And 3 hours later....ta da! Ok, so we visited a little bit,
and I got to tuck Cozetticus in for the night....
Here are two of Monica's projects. Not very good photos, but excellent knitting!
Arrrgg. Sideways and I don't know how to fix it on the new computer.
Can you see it is a lovely cardigan almost completed?
And this scarf that looks woven? Amazing.
It's interesting how, now, every single sweater, or any knitted item, I see, I look very closely to see what I can see....and then my pesky brain wants me to try and figure out how to do it with my own little hands.
Need new yarn already....but, of course! Only borrowing needles for now.
Yes. I am a fan of life-long learning! You?
