I'm not afraid to admit that I'm an impulsive and instant gratification type of person. I think that's why sewing children's clothing suits me so well. I can whip some fabric out of my stash and with a few short seams and a quick press - the outfit is done. Adult sized clothing seems to take too long.
Here is my lastest adventure: Knitting. Squishy soft yarn and some straight sticks.
I gave knitting a go a long time ago and decided it wasn't for me. It takes waaay too long to see the results. But recently - I tried it again. I don't love it - but I love feeling the soft fabric and I love knowing that something hand-knit will be loved in a special way and passed down from kid to kid (and maybe grandkid - is that thinking too far ahead?)
I love this tomatoey color. Charlie called it rust. Vicky called it orange. The colors really don't do it justice. There is a small pinkish hue on some areas that I just love.
I've just finished the sweater (photos soon) My second knitting project. Complete with cables, short rows, ribbing and grafting. If that sounds hard - it was!
I wouldn't call myself a knitter. Yet.
