Well, I had a pretty sucky winter.
It all began in November when my husband left me for his old girlfriend. Yup. That was pretty harsh. So now I'm 25 and about to be divorced and still trying to get through university and my poor kid's heart is broken along with mine. What do I do?
What any damn good Crafty Chick would do. I crafted through the pain! I beaded, I sewed, but mostly, I KNIT!!!
Here's a small sampling of the stuff I made from December onward:
from the top left: 5 men's beanies in Bernat softie chunky knit in stockinette stich, A pale yellow women's ribbed beanie in Bernat Haven, a boys ribbed beanie in Bernat softie chunky, Part of an Irish hiking scarf (First time with cables, I love 'em!) A mohawk hat in Briggs and Little pure wool, lightly felted, pink and black striped scarf in Red Heart light and Lofty (the Quickest knitting yarn in the world, I swear!) My gigantic green scarf, I love huge scarves and this is definitely huge! (my friends and I call it "THE BIGGEST SCARF IN THE WORLD!!!" *yes, it needs to be written in all caps!*) Half of a "Big Bad Baby Blanket" that I'm knitting for my cousin who is due in late May, knit with Bernat Harmony, and my favorite rose coloured floppy hat, knit with Paton's Divine. (Favorite yarn EVER!)
and my kid wearing his mohawk hat, which he LOVES and wears everyday!
