For those of you that follow me on Facebook or on Twitter know that I have spent the last few days trying to perfect my knitting/purling stitch AND making the cutest crocheted flowers... Today I was VICTORIOUS!!! I was thrilled. I ran outside and yelled across the street to my children (who were chatting with a friend) THAT I DID IT! I made my first 5 petal flower and it was precious!
I then spent the day making more with whatever yarn I had in the house. (which wasn't alot.)
Friday, when I go to all 3 craft stores that are near my house, I will pick up some buttons, pearls and rhinestones to embellish the middle. Along with pins so I can secure them on my cardigans, hats, pocketbooks, hairbands and etc... Tomorrow I will pick up more yarn so I can make more. I can't wait!!!!
It took me forever to find the right tutorial that was easy for a WAY beginner like me and easy to watch and self-teach. I almost gave up till I found the last one which made it so simple. I still plan on going back and learning the other way most women teach but will wait till im a bit better in this craft.
I also researched knitting. I still need plenty of practice but I learned how to do the rib stitch... which is just an alternating knit stitch and purl stitch... I will be practicing that new stitch tonight. I also figured out a VERY easy scarf pattern so once I know how to do this stitch well, I will begin to make my very first scarf. Im so excited. I think I found some Christmas gifts I will make for close family members (If Im good enough of course)
I also watched some videos on neck warmers which I SOOO wanna do but the you tube videos STINK!
But they had great hats and beanies and caps. Then I can add my flowers on there and officially be the crazy lady on my block! I LOVE it.
All in due time though. One project at a time. I will keep you posted as my creations progress. I pray they don't go on the back burner once Sweet P. is born. Im on a roll!!!
But I must go. Kids need to be tucked in, pjs need to be put on and knitting needs to be done. My eyes hurt from watching you tube videos all day. Time to rest!
