Just an Introduction. Who I am, What I do, Where I'm going...
I'm just a Knitty Gritty kind of girl. I ♥ to knit!
My first project was in 2000. I was browing Michael's when I found Our Best Knit Baby Afghans. I'd tried knitting before, twice to be exact. Neither time did I catch on. My knitting and crochet skills only extended to being able to do a single crochet.
Six years later, I've made: aghans, (baby and queen sized), scarves, handbags, sweaters, baby dresses. I hope to do more though. I am nearly completed with my own sweater, just need to sew the pockets and of course, the much dreaded, finishing.
But this is what I am now working on for my boyfriend. (I just completed a beanie for his big ears. *This is in NO way teasing his ears, I ♥ his big ears.*) This pattern was taken from www.knitty.com. It's called Leo and calls for Horstia Maulbeerseide Schurwolle, (whatever that is, right?). I have substituted the yarn, (which is a 50% wool and 50% silk blend), with Debbie Bliss' baby cashmerino. So far so good, though I will say, doing an entire ribbed sweater, well it's monotonous. But, Shawn always smiles at my progress and I tell him he will have to wear it til he dies. I'm glad I found a boyfriend that appreciates my handiness around the needles.
