I took up knitting about two years ago, but haven't really done much. Living in a warm climate, I only knit between November and March. My first few projects included a baby afghan and a scarf. I discovered that I get bored on long projects, so I thought my days of knitting were over. Then I discovered neck warmers. A lot faster to make than a scarf, and a wonderful fashion accessory. They are also a great way to try out new stitches. I like to think of them as my samplers.
Last year I made numerous neck warmers for my friends and myself. So when it came time to make Christmas gifts, it seemed like the obvious choice. Below are a few of the things I've made over the past month.
I also like to make hats - pretty quick and easy and great for the kids.
And even though I vowed never to make another scarf, I discovered the knitting board, which means I can knit up a scarf in no time. I even decided to tackle an afghan again.
I'm running out of time - only two weeks left. And still so much more to knit!
