Yesterday, I got all of my blocks made for my Crazy 8 quilt. I laid all the blocks out and decided how they needed to go. I pinned them all together but that was it. I didn't even take a picture. I'll do that later when I have the blocks sewn together. I was tired and decided to take a break from sewing. I came downstairs and turned on the TV. I put in a DVD I picked up last week at the Woolie Ewe. It was a knitting DVD by Lucy Neatby and it was her New Knitter DVD, #16. I picked up my knitting needles and finished knitting a small hat. This will be for Parkland Hospital. (Yes, another community service project. My quilt guild makes hats for Parkland and for soldiers too.) I knitted it flat and now I have to sew it together. This is not my favorite part of knitting but it is small and should go pretty quickly. I would have knitted it in the round but this was the first time I knitted this hat and wanted to make sure the pattern was accurate. It was, so now, I will knit it without the seam next time. I'll show you this once it's all sewn together.
Lucy Neatby's DVD was great. Lots of info on this one and it helped me with the sewing up part to my hat too. I am ready to go back and buy all of her DVD's, now I know what I want for Christmas! I am not new to knitting, but I consider myself a beginner. I have only knitted for about three years. There are so many things I want to knit but I am very slow.
I crocheted another rose for my hat but I didn't like it. I'm going to make another one that's medium sized. I made a big one but I'm not felting this one so it was way too big. I'll get it right soon and show you that finished product too. Ok, gotta go for now, I'll show pics tomorrow, so til next time....happy sewing!
