It's a Sock!

Okay here is my second big knitting project... one very heavy, very warm sock. It's made to fit me but Jac agreed to model for the blog!
I'm really happy with how it came out, but now i'm on the lookout for a smaller guage loom so that I can make socks using a thinner yarn so they arn't so darn hot.

I learned something new!

So I decided after reading Saturday Night Knitting Club with my book club, that I too could learn to knit. The first step for me was picking up a dollar tube knitting kit at Joanns! Well I whipped through that.. and started my search for how to books. Then while at AC Moore the other day I came across a book using Provo Crafts Knifty Knitter which is a round knitter not needles. Looked perfect and easy to me, so I bought the book, a four pack of the Knifty Knitters, and a bag of cheapy yarn to practice with. Hubby said he wanted to see a finished project within a month. I decided then to make him a hat, and finished two days.. can you believe it.

Here is a picture of me sporting the hat, which came out just a big large, guess the measurements in the book are just estimates.

Here is a picture of the hat all on it's own, see how it came out pretty long!

And here is a picture of the very "fancy" cuff I added at the bottom!
I think next on my list is some socks.. and then once I master this knitter, I think I'll still give those needles a try!

A Little More Mouse!

The clock in my lovely Mickey Mouse themed room seemed to be a bit stuck out in no I decided to liven it up a bit.

This is the far view...
This is a closer view...
And this is a close up of the hand... but you still can't see that the white paper is glittery...

Thanks for taking a look!
