Knit one, Purl two


I took up knitting as a hobby shortly after my daughter was born and have since been knitting scarves till the cows come home. My first scarf, for my husband, came out so uneven because I dropped a few stitches as I went along. We still keep that scarf so we can have a good laugh once in a while. I have recently moved into the more complicated hat pattern and have one successfully finished and sitting in my drawer. My mother-in-law is an expert knitter and can make an adult sweater, in some very complicated pattern, overnight - I kid you not!

The two above (one still in progress) will be for my daughter's preschool teachers. They are two wonderful women and I wanted to show them my appreciation for taking such good care of my daughter while at school. I am almost finished with the second scarf, which is made out of fun fur, and plan on giving it to them on Valentine's Day.

What do you think, am I ready for sweaters yet?

The new header looks great! I am just learning how to knit and I have the ability to add stiches! How I do this, I have yet to figure it out!

I give you all the credit in the world for being patient enough to learn how to knit.

I love your new header! Great job!
