Spring is almost here...

Spring is almost here... I guess I'm going to slowdown on the knitting and get out in the yard!
I'm a brand new knitter and I'm really hooked. It has been so relaxing and something easy to take with me where ever I go. In the car, at the hospital, Dr.'s appointments. It's my new mobile craft!!! LOL
This is just a little bowl I made out of some leftover wool. I love to do felted projects... Cables are so much fun to do and I learned so much from this little hat project. I've been trying to pick projects that have something else that I have no idea how to do. I need to learn how to read the patterns. I even bought the book Knitting for Dummies. It is a great book...
This arm warmer has the horseshoe cable on it...



My new spring felted bobble purse is finally finished, I lined it last weekend (in between planting seeds).

This purse is done in the seed stitch with a I-cord strap... Boy I even am starting to sound like a knitter!!! LOL I'm learning all the names for these stitches.

This one is the seed stitch to, I don't know if it is going to be a scarf or a purse yet, the mystery project...
This is going to be my Mothers new slippers for her 84th birthday tomorrow. It just amazes me that you can knit something out of wool and they shrink and felt and turn out beautiful. I will give them to her and put them in the washer with hot water and they will felt and that way I can put them on her and mold them to her feet. It is COOL HOW IT WORKS!!!


This is what they look like when they are finished! REALLY !!! Those big purple things will look like this when they are done!!!


Well time for bed...
Have a Good One,
Lynn

Wow, your knitting is amazing! Learning to cable knit was on my New Year's "to do" list. Glad that I still have lots of months left! Love those slippers!

Oh my gosh....You are the yarn Queen! I can't get over a relatively new knitter...doing a variety of projects like this. I have to get done with my baby blankets, so I can get on to more "little fun" projects. That's what keeps it interesting...not getting bogged down by a big project. Keep those needles clickin' girl..you are amazing!

Whoa Woman! You have been on a knitting frenzy this winter ;-) You are doing so good. Love the slippers. I can crochet like crazy but not good with knitting. Can't do two things at the same time. Two needles you know LOL!
