knitting

I spent a great deal of time today trying to photograph my knitting projects and failed miserably. I guess I won't quit my day job and give up my dreams of being a world famous photographer ; ) Anyway, I taught myself to knit about 4 months ago and here is what I have accomplished so far (minus a small scarf I crochet for twin son). Here is the best of my worst knitting pic's . . .

I made two eyelash scarfs, ice blue and a funky lavender with red and yellow 'eyelashes'.

I just finished a knitted bag, with 3 different stitches.


Wish you could see the detail of these scarves better. It is really interesting how the 'eyelashes' are part of the yarn. They are multicolored threads wrapped around the yarn and protrude like eyelashes when knitted, cool huh? They have a feathery feel about them.


One more shot of my bag, might make a few of these in different colors and use them instead of store bought gift bags.
My next project is going to be a couple more eyelash scarves for friends, then a crocheted (taught myself that too) baby afghan for new grand baby. Then the older kids found a knitting book for Harry Potter and want 'house' scarves in their fave colors. So will tackle that by next fall - LOL
Blessings, Beth Ann
