11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / So Fresh afghan!! aka The Never-Ending Afghan of Doom on: October 07, 2008 02:28:54 PM
I am so happy I finally finished this project.  It took me FOUR YEARS!  (Well, there was about a three-year hiatus lol. But still.)  I started this a looong time ago and then stopped; I got frustrated because it was taking forever.  Then, I was cleaning out the basement and found the half-finished afghan... now that I'm older and wiser I decided to finish it.

I'm really happy with the way it came out! It is so warm and comfy. I used Caron Simply Soft and the pattern is So Fresh from the book Color Charged Afghans by Anne Halliday.   

Here it is!

I don't think I'm going to be making any more afghans anytime soon...  Wink
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Keyhole Scarf on: September 27, 2008 07:46:55 AM
I just made this scarf.  I did a variety of different stitches to make it look different and also because I get bored easily  Cheesy I'm excited about it because this is my first knitted scarf that I actually like enough to wear out!

This travel journal is the first book I made!  I've always wanted to try book making, and I'm really happy with how it came out.
(Sorry that the pics aren't the clearest.)

I'm going to use this journal to document my fabulous travels.  Assuming that I ever have any fabulous travels  Wink
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting for leftys?? on: August 23, 2004 04:40:29 PM
I really want to learn how to knit.  I have the needles, I have the yarn, but the problem is... I'm left handed.  I tried knitting the normal way, but it feels soooo awkward and so wrong, and my stitches always come out amazingly uneven, if I manage not to drop them!  (Although that's probably just cause I'm a beginner.) All I want to do is hold the working needle (is that what it's called?) in my left hand! There's gotta be some lefty knitters out there, right?? Does anyone have any help/advice?  Should I suck it up and learn right handed?  Or am I doomed to never knit? 

argh, I'm so frustrated!
