my name is shannon, and i am a knitting addict. hehe.

but really... i've been knitting for probably 3-4 months and i absolutely love it. i can escape and engulf myself in my latest project and feel great. recently, i've knit the following...

ottie, the octopus...

adapted from a crochet pattern:)

a "fashion" scarf for my sister and one similar for my mom...

you can't see it very well in the picture, but the knit is real loose, making it very light and flowy. it is made with trellis yarn (it is almost ribbon/lace like). very neat. the one i made for my mom (and two small ones for her dogs;) is in this color scheme and looks pretty cool as well.

plus, numerous other scarves for friends and such. currently, after completely ruining my first attempt at a hat, i'm trying again... this time, with more yarn:) i am definitely more comfortable with using double-point needles rather than a circular needle.

p.s. having this community makes me SO happy!

yay... thanks for joining!

well, here's more of my story... i haven't worked in about 3 months, so i had to find something to keep myself busy. so basically, i've probably knit something every day. eek!

but seriously, don't be intimidated! hopefully, if we get this thing rolling, we will have a chance to do a meet-up and we can help each other out. take a look at the link i posted in the latest entry... the videos on expert village are awesome!

ahh! Man I wish I had the time off to do something like this! I hope to some day be a stay at home parent!

I'm easily intimidated when things like this happen.. lol. My goal is to merely knit an afghan of some such.. lol.. we'll see!

I do hope to learn form people who are willing ot teach and not just look down on someone for not knowing how instantly!

Ohh I love expert tutorials.. Mrs. Moskowits knits on youtube ahs taught me how to purl.. but yay!
