Hello :)

I never knew there was a board for this Wink I was checking out the photography board when I found this one.

I'm Kim a SAHM to two beautiful little girls Claire (4) and Addison (2 next month) I'm usually on the NOV 08 board.

I'm a beginner- intermediate I guess knitter/crocheter I learned the basics when I was a kid but re-taught myself after having kids. I learn by watching youtube ROFL I just google what I need to stich and find out how to do it LOL

Right now I've done mostly hats and blankets but I did finish a dress for my little ones BD.

here are a few things I've done.

last years Elf and tree hats

My crochet dress

And my new creation, a ponytail/pigtail hat. My little girl always has her hair in ponytails and pigtails. So there are three openings for when she has her hair up. I then attempted a flower (without a pattern.. I need to work on that part) to button over the hole when its not needed.

Other then that I sort of scrapbook (haven't had a chance to do it in a couple years) and make cakes Wink Look forward to "meeting" you all and seeing your creations Wink

Welcome to our pretty slow board! Wink I enjoyed seeing your creative hat for the pony tails!

I'm at a lull right now, though there are a hundred items I'd like to find time for before Christmas. Anyway, I have all the wool I need, just need to finish garden cleanup etc before sitting by the wood stove to knit for the grandchildren.

Hello! This IS a slow board, but i kind of like to think it gets a little busier when the colder months come. I'm Kim too....and I haven't picked up my needles in a loong time, but have had the itch to do so! Stick around and check back in once in a while! I think it will start moving again soon! Love your projects! Your girls are very cute too!

Thanks ladies Smile

Hi Ashley Smile actually Ashley is the one that got me really into the hats, with her Susan B Anderson Itty Bitty Hats book Smile

I agree though I tend to knit more once it gets colder out.

I love love love Susan B. Anderson! I dont' have her itty bitty hats book, but i do have her itty bitty nursery and toys books!

Everyday i keep thinking i have to get my needles out and do some knitting but I have yet to actually accomplish that. Maybe i should make it a goal this week.

If i start posting about what I'm working on...people will see some very familiar projects, as I haven't finished up any of my old things from last year it seems.

If there is one new project I would like to start this fall...it would be these:

My mother-in-law gave me the pattern last Christmas and I really want to knit a pair this fall! I have a pair of fiddlehead mittens that i wear to death. I love them and I get lots of compliments on them from strangers! But i need a pair i can swap out for when the others get wet...or just for something different!

What do you all want to work on this fall?

Hi Kim
I knit, but I've dabbled in crochet for making dishcloths because it goes faster.

My son has the same tree hat you made for your DD. I love the ponytail hat. Very cute!

I'm Janel, I have three sons and I am like GardenBug/Marie. I have enough yarn to last me my lifetime (and I'm younger than Marie). I am trying to knit a sock a month, so I'll end up with 6 pairs in a year. I went crazy knitting baby pants (longies) for my youngest and I'll probably do more. I'm making a couple pairs for my friend in exchange for some sewing (which is a skill I'm cultivating, but it's harder to find time for it since it can only be done in my sewing room, unlike knitting which I can do anywhere).

Glad to see you here!

Janel, I just bought more yarn over the weekend, along with wooden (bone?) heart shaped buttons.:rolleyes: I'm so busy with garden clean-up and book club that I wonder when I'll finish all the things I really WANT to knit!!!!
