New Year and New Projects

Knitted clogs before felting

Happy New Year! Yeah I'm a couple weeks late saying that but I've been doing all kinds of creative stuff and just haven't gotten around to blogging it all.

I have been knitting!! I have been finding this such a soothing thing to do and so much fun to see the projects grow from a twisted skein of yarn into an object of clothing or an accessory. Useful items are such a joy t make and use.

Starting off my entry this time is the Fiber Trends Felted Clogs. It's amazing that something so huge and floppy will become a firm fabric with shape and are so comfortable to wear. This is not a hard pattern if you follow it exactly line by line. I even was able to felt them in my front loader washing machine with out any trouble!

Next up are socks that I knit for my sweet husband. I actually made it through the whole pattern twice with out having to rip out a bunch of stitches and start again. Yeah Baby! That was a real accomplishment. Well, gee, I have to find that photo so I can post it! Arrgh. On the other computer right now.

I made a fun doodle of a lovely little girl's name. She asked and we did a pinky promise. So, I had to follow through. I'll find out tomorrow what she thought of it. Then I'll add the photo of it here. :)

Hey, I hope you have had a chance to get out and do something creative already!
