Let's Knit Why Knot?

I’ve only been knitting for 2 years and it is one of those things that makes me sit and focus and still be productive! I love it! I can’t knit enough! Lately, I have been making hats, hats and more hats. I enjoy it because they are quick! Makes me feel good to complete a project daily! =) And they are a great way to use up small amounts of yarn {that I have stuffed all over our house}.



This fall I had the pleasure of teaching a small group of 8 girls how to knit at my son’s school. I was so surprised how quick they all got it! Makes my heart melt knowing I passed a hobby on to them!




I am so proud of them! They each made a headband to keep their ears warm...and they were so excited to make more for gifts. Here is one I made...it is such a great pattern, here is the link {pattern}...Now you can make one! =)

So I have always just picked up my yarn Hobby Lobby, JoAnns or Michaels, but I have come across this pattern to make a sweater. Next project!!!



I bought the pattern {here} and as I looked for yarn realized these stores just didn’t have what it was calling for....so I went to my local yarn shop, yarn & stitches and I found the yarn like she has in the pattern...


The only catch was I had to order it and it was only {yikes} $100 to make the sweater! So why am I telling you all this??? I am scared to touch the yarn!! It is has been just sitting in my craft room....I don’t want to mess up! So by announcing to you that its my next project..it will help me get in gear and make it!! Anyone else want to make one with me?? Happy Knitting!

 Hugs,
