Here are my hedera cuffs, AGAIN! I'm yelling at my knitting, not you. The cuffs, and toes, and heels will be yellow with orange spots, (from some hand-dyed I messed up), and the leg, and foot will be hand-dyed orange left over from my best friend socks. I reswatched and I'm using size 2 needles. I have to use bigger needles alot. I don't care. If it turns out, I'm happy. The pink and green yarn is still on a time out. Haha.
This other picture is from a funny little kit my hubby found in Target. I was chatting with an old friend, that I haven't seen in forever, and he was cruising the clearance aisle. It's a knit your own fuzzy pink slippers kit. The yarn is polyester, but it's soft. The needles are junky, but it was on sale for $3.74!! It came with a Learn How To Knit DVD. I think I'll give it to my friend, C. (Not the one I met for knitting on the 5th. A different friend, C.) She and her daughter are learning to knit. I'm going to knit the slippers, and either keep them, or gift them to a relative that I know will like them. I haven't decided yet. We'll see how they turn out first. If they aren't good, I won't gift them. I think they'll be neat, though.
I knit a lot for myself. I refuse to feel guilty for it, though. The people who appreciate my handy-crafts do get hand made gifts from me. I have knitted, or made other gifts by hand for certain people who won't get something hand made from me, again. I'll buy them gifts if I have to.
Do you knit mostly for yourself, your kids, others??? Just wondering.
I knit for:
- my kids (a lot)
- my hubby (a little)
- his mom, and my mom
- my best friend and her kids
- any new baby I hear of. Hehe.
I wonder who all y'all knit for. Let me know; I'm nosy!! Haha!!
Well, gotta go do some stuff, so I can sit down and knit those socks!! Or swatch for the rpm ones from knitty. Just keep knitting..Just keep knitting..
