Hi! I had some time today to go out and take a few pictures. I wanted to show you all some of our latest projects. Growing up, my mom taught us how to knit. She is super crafty and taught us all we know in our amateur crafty ways. She also taught us how to spin our own wool to make our own yarn. Yeah, we grew up in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin and we were home schooled. It's kind of cool in a way though, right? Yes, when you can make cute scarves like this one. That one. Right up there! I made that. I'm just slightly proud of myself, because for one I had never knit cables before and that I even finished is pretty exciting. I get distracted easily and when I was younger would start a lot of projects but never finish. I guess I've learned some patience at this ripe old age, emphasis on some.
I think my shirt says "See the Joy" in French. That's cool.
If I wore a shirt that said "See the Joy" in English. That would be lame.
Funny how that works!
Now while I was knitting my little scarfy up there, my sister knit a skirt! Now are you aware of how much yarn goes for nowadays? Goodness Gracious, it's a racket! So in order to save some bucks, she went to the thrift store and bought a red sweater. It looked something like this.
She unraveled all of that red yarn, wound it into skeins, and knit, knit, knit. Until that turned into this!!
Syd, you are a knitting rockstar.
Seems somewhat wrong to see knitting and rockstar in the same sentence, but I'm just stating the facts of the matter.
