Musiclady and sunspotted, I'd be willing to hold your hand through a Hoopla swap if you want. There's really a wide variety of skill levels in the Hoopla and all of the hoops are just gorgeous. Smiley

I have one piece that I have to finish tonight for STS and then I'm headed into dishcloth land. Mom's birthday is coming up and she's asked for some new ones.

lapoli- I was going through my feeds just now and came across this: http://www.handmadebyalissa.com/placemat-pattern/

It's a (free) pattern for sewn placemats that's "100% a project for beginners". Since I just learned to thread my machine last night, I figured I might give this a shot and thought maybe some fellow sewing beginners might like to try it also  Smiley

What a great idea!  As soon as I get settled in my new apartment I'm in!

I'm cheating, and I'm ok with that (however, I do need to straighten some fabric here and there, and I'll wait until tomorrow to do it  Cheesy ). I finished my first weaving project this morning, a scarf that I'm pretty happy with:

I'm working on the cowl pattern for the Knifty Knitter from Lion brand yarn. I used Lion Brand Homespun in the colorway Lagoon. I still have almost half the skein left, I think. I'm done with the knitting, but now I have to figure out the best way to finish it off. The instructions for ending the piece aren't great for a newb.
http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60438.html?r=1&r=1

I might put the pom poms on it, but I have mixed feelings about pom poms...

If anyone else has made one of these, how did you finish it? I will do it sometime this evening, whether I know what I'm doing or not. This cowl is for me, and it's a learning experience. Cheesy I will probably end up making others. It's soft and squishy. It's the first thing I've made on a round KK loom that isn't a hat. That's part of why I am having trouble ending it. All KK hats are gathered at the top to finish them.

I'm home with the kids tonight, and hubby is on night shift, so it's a quiet New Year's for us. I'm happy enough to knit and play with the crafty goodies I got for Christmas.

I might start out the new year by working on the T-shirt rug that has been on my knitting board for months now. That's on my list.

I'm so envious that everyone is starting already and also glad to see it!  Grad apps are due on Wednesday and I'm moving on Tuesday so I'm not allowed to start ANYTHING.
