Knitting Projects

One of my goals on my list of 35 things to do this year was to knit 6 items. I ended up knitting more than 6, but some were small items and I never blogged about them! So today I want to share 6 things I made this year that I am proud of.

I made this scarf for Zachary’s kindergarten teacher last year as a holiday gift. I believe she enjoyed it!

I made a few of these hats as giveaways for blogs and then I made one for me!

This is the sweater I’m knitting.

It’s supposed to look like this but I’m not so sure it will:

VERY impressed with the Nemo bootie and the rainbow scarf. I think they're genius! I've never knitted in my life so I'm very impressed when people can knit something with one color, much less many.

Dara said...

thanks! and I will!

Dara said...

thanks!

Dara said...

thank you. knitting with more than one color isn't usually too hard, but it's easy when the yarn itself changes colors as you go! the rainbow scarf (not the color block one) is yarn that comes in a variety of colors!

I love that cowl scarf! I am so into scarves and buy them whenever I see them lol. I wish I could knit them myself. I can't wait to see what the sweater looks like when you are done :)
