Some stuff I've made.

I thought I'd post some pictures of some stuff I've made in the past. Here are 3 ponchos: the green cabled one is mine, the blue stripey one is my daughter Amanda's, and the one made of red Lion's Brand Fancy Fur is my other daughter Brittany's. I made these about a year ago, my first big attempts at stuff we could actually wear out of the house!

I spent about three weeks recently knitting a Harry Potter Prizoner of Azkaban scarf for my little boy, Tyler. I even put his initials on the bottom, and made a little hat out of the leftover yarn! I'm hoping for one heck of a snow storm to hit so he can get some use out this thing!

I'm still hard at work on my first pair of socks and the Red Scarf. I'm hoping to get something finished tonight. As for working with double pointed needles... at first I was cussing whatever sadistic son-of-a-gun had gotten so drunk that he decided to invent the stupid things! LOL Then after knitting a few rounds of the cuff with 'em, I discovered they aren't that bad. Actually I kind of like using them now, but boy, was it intimidating looking down at 4 little pointed needles tangled in yarn, trying to figure out how the heck I was supposed to hold all that mess in one hand AND knit! Anyway, the first sock is butt-ugly but the second one is coming along nicely now, thanks to some very nice technical advise I got from Susan. (Pssst...Susan, if you're reading this.... THANKS AGAIN!)
