First off, I want to thank everyone that has responded so kindly to my 100th post – you guys are just too cool for school! 😉 Don’t forget you have until Wednesday the 21st of August to enter the GIVEAWAY! Click →HERE← to return to that post and share your love of small businesses.
I am going to have to be a lean, mean, knitting machine because guess what friends and neighbors – I got my first order today! I was so overjoyed to see that there were over 15 orders in my inbox that it didn’t occur to me what they could all possibly want. Should I let the Dramatic Chipmunk prepare you for my revelation?
RUFFLE SCARVES!……28 MORE RUFFLE SCARVES!!!!
I hope you all won’t get tired of me, blogging about my struggle with the great ruffle yarn. I have to say that it is great to be bringing money home from my knitting, giving Trevor a little extra cash could never be a bad thing.
So onward I go, putting aside the adorable baby hat and jumper to get down and dirty with some ruffle scarves. Keep in touch, please try not to get too bored with me and remember – while I am working with the ruffle yarn I am dreaming of all the amazing things I am going to do when I am done!
I collect hobbies and hoard information, very much like a squirrel with nuts. Every day I seem to see or read about something new that I just HAVE to learn how to do. So, if you will allow me to make a list for the goofy things I am dying to try to learn or knit, read on friends and neighbors.
Knit a terrarium full of flowers, birds, grass, and bugs as a art piece.
Knit a crossword puzzle blanket.
Knit a chessboard blanket with pieces in starting position.
Knit with beads/sequins (this whole application boggles my mind a bit).
Learn to write a pattern that is cohesive.
Learn to read knitting charts (sadly, I still have to write out the chart before I cast on).
Learn to dye yarn.
Knit a Fisherman’s Sweater for the hubby (he loved the hat, why not a sweater? we’re already married after all 😉
(If I am breaking some sort of copy write rule of thumb, please let me know and it will be fixed immediately)
We could cuddle….if you’re into that?
Adorable baby presents!
Can you imagine doing crossword puzzles under this? EPIC!
I think I am in lust!
Oh my how I want to do this!
I want to knit a version of this.
I’m gonna knit the crap out of you!
My niece would love this!
Charts….You Scare Me!
Oh SOOO Pretty!
I Lust After This Wall Installation.
Am I drooling? Yup…it’s happening!
Beautiful art that the hubby can wear!
A new way to utilize the kitchen.
Custom yarn colors!
There is also the every growing bucket list…just for knitting. I love lists and I love knitting, these things seem to go hand in hand.
The Ever Growing Knitting Bucket List
Design as sell patterns.
Be published! (holy crow, that would be amazing!)
Be able to teach classes.
Be able to teach classes to other arthritic knitter’s like myself. To show them you don’t have to give up what you love because your hands work against you.
Learn to crochet more than just the basics (it is soooo hard on my hand, but that’s never stopped me).
There is time (oh God I hope there’s time!) to work my way through my lists and hope to keep you updated on their progress. Any projects, skills or abilities you are lusting after? Feel free to comment. Hope you slept well and have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed writing.
