Minding My Own Knitting

This time of year other things besides hunting can gain my attention. I admit these projects are from the past. A good representative of the type of things I like to do when I get the yearning for a bit of the yarn. (child's hat) Pictured below is one of my most favorite things I add to my winter apparel, my scarf, so soft and warm. It has seen extreme weather hikes and burdock in the field. Probably why it is difficult for me to get the deer to take me seriously. These following two examples of stitchery are included in Leisure Arts leaflet 932. An instruction book filled with 60 different stitches to chose from to create sampler afghans for the eyes to feast on. Not to mention keeping the knitter occupied for a good amount of time...when they aren't blogging about one thing or another.

Very nice knitting...never could do that - I can do needlepoint though! :)

Marian - Thanks, I like to knit, but I need to be in the mood to get it accomplished. I haven't attempted needlepoint. ;)

Nice knitting. Not that I am an expert on it but I do remember that my mother knitted many pullovers for me and I wore than all with pride.

Othmar - You honored your mother greatly when you wore what she made and put her heart into to keep you warm.

I have a ways to go in creativity but I like to tinker.
