I recently went on a cruise with my boyfriend Keith and his parents. On the car ride from Mobile to Daytona and back his mom, Cei Cei, taught me how to kint. It was a little tricky to catch on to at first but she was a good teacher. I am actually left-handed and she is right-handed so that made it all the more difficult. It was hard for her to explain it backwards and hard for me to learn it backwards. Once we figured it out, she gave me some yarn that was easy to work with and I practiced. Row after row I got better. I picked up on keeping it tight and making sure you have the right number of loops on your needle at the end of each row. For my first project I wanted to make a scarf but I ended up running out of yarn so I turned it into a purse. I was proud of my purse but I was still determined to make a scarf. On my mom's side of the family we draw names for Christmas and I got my cousin Meg, So, I decided I would make her a scarf and a matching one for her American Girl doll! She loved it and hopefully it will keep her and her doll warm for the few cold winter days we have in Alabama!
Stay tuned for more knitting projects! Not sure what I will make next but I really enjoyed learning to knit and seeing the finished project. Maybe I can also share with you a few of mamma Cei Cei's projects too!
Thanks for visiting my blog! I created this site to share with you some of the projects I enjoy doing around my home and things I have created with friends and family. As a child I enjoyed trying new projects. Like most children though, I would often lose interest in one thing and in no time gain interest in a whole new project.-I think this trait was passed down to me by my dad. I created potholders, many a scrapbooks, baked clay animal figures in the oven-think that was a total disaster, created doll clothes with my mom and grandma, made Easy Bake brownies-if that counts, and the list goes on and on. Thanks to my family for allowing me to be creative and crafty as a child. I carry that with me now and still have a love for homemade projects. Their is nothing like taking a few hours on Saturday to dedicate yourself to doing a project, being focused only on that one thing, and then being proud of the beautiful finished product you have created. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things I have created and maybe inspire your next homemade project idea!
