Hello and a happy Sunday to you!
A big thanks to everyone who's been so friendly to welcome me on board of YoP and even giving me advice how and where to begin on my knitting adventure! Is it bad that I want to add all your suggested projects to my list? Uh-oh.. It's been one week, and the adding to the list has started already..
I haven't been able to do a lot of knitting at all. I don't know if you've seen my post that we were selling our couch and buying a new one, but I'm beginning to think we've kind of spun out of control a little bit.. In a few weeks time we have bought new chairs, a bench a new couch & loveseat, a daybed, two little tables and two new cupboards/cabinets. Both cabinets had to be put together, and we're sore from all the lifting!
We did put together one cabinet today, so hooray for that! And I did some sawing today - yes, sawing, not sewing - which I had never done before.. I feel very victorious! Here's a picture of the cabinet we put together (sorry it's evening with us already so it's a bit dark..) I'm so excited for tomorrow when I get to put all my little crafty supplies into those drawers!!
The other one looks like this and is sitting in two pieces in two different rooms of our house. Really it's a bit of a mess here.. And to think it all started with buying new dining room chairs!
But anyhoo, on to the important part of this post! The knitting!
After some consideration I picked the little knitted gift bags as my first project. I have a few birthday's coming up so I could use some cute gift baggies, and because I have already crocheted gift bags looong ago, they looked easiest to me..
I found this youtube movie on how to get started with my DPNs.. Very useful indeed!
Uhm, so yeah, here's a picture of the progress.
I know, it's a bit emberassing, but I have started over lots of times.. Ãnd did I tell you we've almost redecorated our entire house? I think I'm getting the hang of this DPN-knitting though! It's nice! It's fun! It's so.. 3D!
Well, I'm off to bed now but I'll be sure to visit you guys tomorrow! And hopefully I will have some more knitting progress by next weeks post...
I bid you all .. Adieu!
