This week has been a busy week. Between preparing for Cyber Monday, my church job and doing the books for a non-profit I volunteer for, I have been a little manic. Late nights, long days have left me, this Friday, constantly ready for a nap. But I have to say, for the most part, I have enjoyed what I am doing. I love the creative side of my life and how that often weaves into my day to day life.
In all of the craziness, I have been working on 3 projects. One is for a friend's daughter, one is an attempt at a request from a friend of a friend and the other is something I just wanted to try out.
Looks like a torture device, doesn't it. A friend of a friend asked if I could make knitted toddler pants. I looked up a knitted cargo pants pattern and am trying it out. So far its been an easy, yet challenging adventure. I knit my first cuff, which for me was fun... I know, I am weird. I think the pattern will be relatively easy as its just a simple knit stitch... For those who don't knit, that's the most basic stitch you can use. If you can knit a scarf, you can knit this. The only problem is that they are on double pointed needles in the round, so it looks super complicated but its really knot. (tee hee) I'm a nerd
This is a super soft, super warm, super chunky blanket I am knitting for a friend. Its a custom order. I am in love with this blanket as is my roommate. If it weren't for the pinks and purples I think we'd have a hard time giving it away :) The pattern is super easy too.
Knitting is relaxing for me. I can do it while watching TV, talking to my roommate, on the subway, etc. I think if my hands and schedule would let me, I'd knit all day.
