I think it's almost 3 years now. Yeah, I think so, cause I learnt in the summer visiting my grandma, and then the next summer I had her buy me yarn for a sweater as my birthday gift (lol) so this will be the third summer.

I also first tried knitting on a toy. I knit that penguin from Knitty (ravelry link) and I spent hours figuring out how to seam it properly. It came out ok in the end.... and my brother didn't care it wasn't perfect. Smiley

there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns

awww. thats adorable. I haven't tried the penguin, but I did make Plushie (norberta) the dragon. That was my first stuffie attempt.

Technically i've been knitting 5-6 years, but I taught myself when I was 13, then I didn't knit again for like 3 years. I started knitting again in high school. I was mainly doing scarves (Harry Potter scarves) but then i learned to cable and do all that other stuff, and then I've moved to other things. (I still do HP scarves.. I'm addicted.).

and I just looked at your ravelry page and omg! fellow browncoat! (I hope... i don't think alliance wear jayne hats lol)

Your dragon is really cute. I love the face.

Wow, you weren't kidding about being addicted to HP scarves. You've almost got all the houses. That's so cool. I really like the Ravenclaw in book colors you are working on now. If I ever took up wearing scarf, I'd make myself a HP scarf. Probably Ravenclaw Smiley

Hehe, you're making a Jayne hat too? Yay! That's the only reason I learnt how to knit. I just had to have a Jayne hat. After that I was addicted. I went online and found so many fun things, I couldn't stop.

technically its done, except the pompom. I just don't have any new photos of it. And I'm not very good at pompoms. I need to make another Jayne hat though, because this one is a little too small, even though i made the pattern bigger. (Who knows)

The dragon looks confused. lol. but thank you. I love your penguin. Its adorable (I'm a major penguin person.)

And yeah. I haven't made a huff yet, so thats next on my list I think. They are just easy to make, and are good for mindless knitting. And, because of them, I've perfected the knit stitch so much I can do it in the dark while i'm falling asleep. lol

Too bad it came out too small. At least a Jayne hat is easy enough that making it again isn't much trouble. After I made my first one I think I made another 3, one for my brother and 1 for two of my friends.

You should try the penguin. It was pretty easy and I think the pattern is just one of those patterns where it always comes out cute looking.

Knit st in the dark while falling asleep - now that's a skill Smiley How long would you say a HP scarf takes you?

lol. Yeah, I still have the yarn so i'll make another one. Maybe this time i'll hold two strands together to make it superthick.

When i was in high school, i could do about 40 rows in a hp scarf a day (knitting only in class). Thats about one set of trapped bars a day. So I did 6 trapped bars in 6 days. But then i always get distracted with other stuff. If i sat down and made sure i at least worked on it a little each day, i could probably do it in less than two weeks. College makes it more difficult, even though now I'm aiming to knit a little each night to get my sweater and scarves done quickly. So hopefully I can do it in like two weeks or so.
