Dala, some knitting.

A hat, made with this pattern. Probably the most complex knitting I've done so far.

Some fingerknit leg warmers.

Half a scarf. Brioche knit.


I've started working 35 hours a week at the preschool. That is too long. 9 hours today, 13 kids.


I'm 23 today.

Congrats! I just turned 24 this week. I still feel like I'm 19 though.

Happy Belated! Holy crap, I always imagined you and flac in y'all's later twenties. More peers on here than I thought.

Happy birthday, youngster. Your knitting work is awesome. I dig the hat.

Happy Birthday!

I love that hat. I have not knitted any hats yet but I have purchased yarn with the intent to turn it into a hat, actually I have a couple of balls of yarn with knitted hat plans attached them.

Yay legwarmers! I have yet to make any myself, but I have a few pairs that I have bought, mainly from sock dreams. I admit that I am not familiar with the term fingerknit. Is that somehow doing knitting with your hands but no needles?

I really like the color of the brioche scarf. That is a technique I have heard of but not tried, it seems like it is maybe more difficult than I am ready for.

I will have to take some pics of the stuff I am working on and post them for you later. Right now I have a 42lb mutt who thinks she's a lap dog making sure I don't need any legwarmers for the moment. XD

Here's the video I used to learn brioche, I think it's actually pretty easy once you have it set up. The scarf is knit using just one repeating row, you should give it a shot!

Here's a good finger knitting video - I've used it to make a hat, but you can use it to make any roughly circular object you want. A bonus is that, because of how tactile the process is, you can fingerknit without looking once you've got a bit of practice. I actually knit (one of) those legwarmers while watching a movie at my local theater. My next finger knitting project is a Haramaki, AKA a belly warmer.

I'd love to see what you're working on! And also puppy pictures.
