This is my latest creation. It is for my almost brother-in-law, Matt. Turned out very well. It is the first time I’ve used good yarn from my YLS (rather than getting something at Jo-Ann’s). LOVED, LOVED working with good yarn! It just gets expensive pretty quickly. I’m working on another one for a friend and ordered striping yarn to make one for a sister.
I found this pattern on-line and fell in love! I’d never attempted anything other than knit and purl, but I HAD to make these. Turned out pretty cute. Noah’s mommy is a huge Wizard of Oz fan and she’s promised a girl next time around so these are for her. Made with Lion Brand Glitterspun they are just adorable. I just need a new camera and some photography lessons.
This is a baby blanket that I knit for Mr. Noah Campbell in Kansas City, Kansas. Noah was born March 10, 2005. I knit this on size 6 needles starting in mid-January and I thought by the time I got done, he’d be about 4 months old. But luckily the blanket it made to Noah’s house a day before he did! I’m learning that I need to take better photos of my projects!
We are called to be fruitful – not successful, not productive, not accomplished. Success comes from strength, stress, and human effort. Fruitfulness comes from vulnerability and the admission of our own weakness. Henri Nouwen

Another blog that is! This time one about my most recent obsession — KNITTING! I am in LOVE with this craft! Finally, something I can “express” myself through and who knew, I’m actually pretty decent at it. I started knitting sometime last fall. I taught myself through a $2 booklet purchased at Wal-Mart. With a little bit of phone help from mom, I soon finished my first scarf. That is, once I learned that if you use bigger needles and chunky yarn, you can actually finish something in less than a month. After knitting everyone I know scarves, I started on baby blankets. I’ve since moved on to my first set of baby booties and am now in the throes of Christmas stockings. Someday soon I am going to start a sweater and a pair of socks! I will try to post pics of my projects.
