my new hobby…

I’ve always liked being crafty and doing thing with my hands.  And, it seems every Christmas my family members gets my latest handmade creation as a gift.  I suppose it is a mixture of wanting to save money and wanting to give things that are meaningful.   Do they always like my gifts?  Uh…not sure about that.  :)

My newest hobby is knitting.  I decided to teach myself to knit this summer.  I’m very deturmined to accomplish things once I’ve set my mind to it.  So,  after many, many hours of trial and error and frustration – I feel I have finally gotten “pretty good.”   The reason I decided to learn was because I had seen so many photographers using adorable knit props in their infant photoshoots (hats, wraps, blankets etc.).   They were too expensive to buy, so I figured I could learn to do it!

Here are some pictures from a few things I knit for family this year – a hat & neck wrap combo and felted purses. They picked the yarn and I picked the projects…

cute stuff! so great that you can do that! i don’t have the patience for it. i went on a retreat with my church last weekend and a lady had a beautiful shawl she had made. I asked her if she’d make me something similar for my pictures and she said yes. i love the texture it adds to photos.
