Knitting Projects--Old and New!
This was my last knitting project--over two months ago now!!! Wow! No wonder I've been craving a new project lately! So anyway, for Ben's Birthday I made him a hat and scarf (the pom-pom on top was optional). I made the scarf as the real gift and then tried my hand at a hat for the first time. Yeah! It turned out decent I thought--not great, but decent! It's made of a rectangle of knitting that is sewn together. It's kind of fun and super easy and quick and didn't involve those frightening double ended needles that scare me!!!
After knitting it, I gave it to Ben for his birthday. Strangely enough he liked the pom-pom on top, although it was just a joke and has since been removed. He wore the hat to work a few times though and they made fun of him because it's red--but red is his favorite color!!! I guess he's been called Raggedy Andy a lot, but hey! I don't care! I'm strong I can take it!!! Although I'm kind of secretly mad too. I think Ben only wears it at home now! I guess he's scared of people making fun of him.... mean, mean people! Just because his girlfriend made him a dorky hat doesn't mean they should make fun of him!
After Ben got done trying on the hat and scarf birthday present, Gussy thought he deserved a shot too! Doesn't he look lovely! He's ready for winter now... and it seems like winter is still hanging around for a bit!
That's me in the hat too--why can't I figure out a way to black out my face? Why am I even putting this on the internet? Scary!
Awww... it's Ben and Gussy--although since Ben is wearing the gear Gussy had to wear the fun little pom-pom from the top. I didn't want anyone to feel left out!
So now the question is this: What am I going to get into next? I'm really interested in learning some more knitting stuff. I like knitting, I think I'm realizing that I miss it a bit. I'm going to try to get a project started this weekend. Seriously, I need to get back into knitting--I think it made me feel happier--I'm going to try it again! Maybe I'll even try cables! They scare the crap out of me, but dang it, it looks so pretty... or maybe a blanket--I keep saying that but not doing it and I think now is the time!!!
