The Two First Caps.


Size 13 in-the-round needles. Rowan Yarn.

Easy as pie.

Cast on 80 stitches. Knit in the round till its about 7 inches.


NEXT ROW: Knit 2. Knit 2 together.

NEXT ROW: Then Knit 2. Knit 2 together.

NEXT FEW ROWS: Knit 2 together, till you only have 5 left.

Then I threaded the excess throught he 5 loops and tied it off.

What can I say? Im a lame beginner XD




The Bee:

Just frestyle. I had no idea what i was doing.

First i made an oval for the bee.
Then the wings.
Then the stripes and antenne.

It is addicting.....truly like crack, a more healthy and productive drug....I know what you mean about spending all your money (I'm being completely serious here) When I go to the craft store, unless I am buying yarn, I literally have to stay on the other side of the store, because once I see all that gloriousness, and realize the true potential of those strings of fiber, I cant get away.


I'm being serious too. I'm broke. Between Jazzing up my car and buying knitting matterials, I've screwed myself over as far as money goes Sad


That's where your awesome knitting SKILLS come in, you can start selling stuff Smiley

Not a bad idea. So far I've had a lot of offers to make people hats and gloves. I just told them to buy me the yarn and pay be 5 bux. Does that sound reasonable?

What I would suggest you do, is, since they are buying the yarn, set an hourly wage for yourself, then, depending on how long you take on one hat/set of gloves, you multiply that by your wage, and that's what you charge. If you were buying the yarn, you'd have to add that to the cost. From what I can see though, at the rate you knit, people will be getting a dang good deal

I am so mad at myself, at the time, I was so pissed off that I couldn't do a freakin rectangle, I think I threw my first "project" away..ughhh! I really wish I had it now so I could show you guys how ridiculous it was.

I'm not perfect. Sure I'm fast, and in general my projects turn out okay, but I'm so impatient that I don't wait to learn things that I NEED to know. Like binding off  Cheesy

Look at my third "project" ever. This is the only thing that I have failed at, and it was because I didnt know how to bind off, so i just tried to stitch it together   Lips sealed

Oh no! haha. That could actually be considered kinda cool. It's one of those things I'd expect to find in those random boutiques for ridiculous amounts of money....I look at them and say "Hey I could knit something and cut holes in it myself!"
