I thought I'd start a thread for us to post what we're currently stitchin' up. Pictures would be cool too. [hint, hint] ;)
Okay, I'll go first! What am I working on? Nothing but a little ol' starter swatch, but do you know why that's cool? Because I CAN KNIT!! I taught myself in one day, and I'm doing it. I'm totally doing it! I am way excited about this. Okay, so all I can really do is cast on and do the knit stitch, but that's like what? Half the battle of basic knitting? LOL! Yes, I am quite proud of myself!
I used the book Stitch & Bitch (which I checked out from the library) and started learning on Monday. I couldn't believe how easily I got it, so I was thinking I was doing something wrong. I checked a YouTube tutorial and yes, I was doing it correctly. Can you tell I'm excited about this?
Will post a photo of my sweet little red starter swatch when it's done. I'm only about halfway done. I didn't get much of a chance to knit yesterday.
I love learning new things!!!
I have been working on this ingenious winter edition I found while browsing the internet. It is called the "beard-beanie" and it is amazing. I use crochet for the beard, and attach it to a knitted hat :)
here's a link to what I'm talking about. If anyone wants, I've been selling for $25 (includes shipping) http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://wtfhub.com/wp-content/up...
oh yes, the beard thing is definitely an aquired taste and is most suited for snowboarders, skiers, anyone who is outside in the cold A LOT. the best part about the beard is taht you can tuck it up in the hat and it ends up doubling as an earwarmer; very snuggly :P.
And congratulations on your knitting accomplishments!!!! It's a wonderful skill to have :)
I've been wanting to make some ami for a while now, finaly decided on this cute cockatiel pattern which i think i will be working on in the next couple of days (once i've retrieved my crochet hooks from my inlaws tomorrow)

Do you have any photos of what you do?
