Crafter Chaos

I think that I have crafter's ADD. I got this bright idea that I wanted to learn to knit in 2009 and I bought this book, a kit and these looms at Michael's yesterday. Now that is all that I want to work on and I really need to get those stockings done before Christmas. Yes, that is a kid's knitting book but really it is always good to know your mental abilities and I felt sure this would be the easiest way to learn for me and I already made that dishcloth. A few mistakes, but I really like knitting.

This wool was my "find" when I cruised Goodwill yesterday morning. The black is 100% cashmere and I have never tried that for penny rugs, but I love the feel of it. I have to cut these up today into something manageable. I wash them whole to felt them and then cut them apart.

These are the stockings that I worked on all morning before church. I had the idea in my head and didn't have a pattern, so far so good. That does not always work well for me. The red ones are the ones that Jenn had for the boys and they need the name "fixed" on them. Not sure what I am going to do with those yet.

This morning was the cantata at our church and it was excellent. A wonderful moment to pause and usher in the Christmas season calmly and to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, God's Gift to us of our Lord and Savior.

Hi, I just hopped over from hang-ups. I saw your comment about the knitting looms. I have not been able to find the round ones. I did teach my 8 year old son to use the rectangle one and he made me and his teachers scarves for Christmas.

I have nejoyed seeing your crafts. you are so talented. I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
