Knitting Projects

This is an overdue post. A lot of my posts become overdue before they get posted, but since blogging isn’t my whole life, sometimes life gets in the way!

I have been busy knitting ever since November or so of last year, when Zippy asked if I would teach her how to crochet and knit. Anyway, I’m just a little proud that I’ve managed to knit so many things and learned several new techniques too. Here are pictures of some of my completed projects.

First up is five of six matching scarves that I knitted. The missing one was in Germany when this picture was taken. I started out knitting these for Zippy and her three very close friends from church, then I ended up knitting two more like them, because I thought the yarn was so pretty.

Then two matching scarves for two brothers.

And a scarf for my six-year old, who thought he needed to have a scarf that didn’t match anybody else! He just wanted to make sure that I thought he was special, I think!

Stockinette

Then a hat for Baby. This was the first project that I knitted in the round, so even though it looks kind of beginner, I’m rather proud of it. I also crocheted the purple flower so that it would match her coat.

And last was a hat for G’tums, who picked out this yarn himself.

I have found that knitting is a hobby that I really enjoy. I can throw it in whatever bag I’m hauling around, i.e. the diaper bag. I can knit while my husband reads stories to the family in the evening. I can knit in the car. I can knit during the midweek Bible study at church. I can knit while watching videos with the kids. Knitting goes everywhere. Right now I’m working on a knit-for-charity project, but that will be a future post, probably a way in the future post.

    Very nice! Did you use a particular pattern? My daughter wants to knit a scarf.

    Great work (fun). I love that you found this rewarding new hobby. The kids seem to love their scarves and hats!! I love Leah’s hat most! But love them all.

    That is exactly why I started crocheting – I can work on my projects at different times during the day, instead of having to sit in front of my sewing machine at designated times. I love the baby hat and flower! I bought special yarn to knit socks in the round for dear husband, but haven’t figured it out yet. Great job!
