Just so everyone knows, I do more than just cross stitch. I haven't been able to show what I am currently stitching because both projects are gifts and I don't want to reveal them until I've been able to give them to their respective recipients. So I thought I'd show you what else I can do.
Most people who know me know I like to do all kinds of needlework. One of my favorites is knitting. I learned to knit when I was about 9 years old. It was summer vacation and I was bored. To keep me occupied, my mom taught me to knit. My first project was an awful purply-mauve dress for my Barbie doll. I was so proud of it! I've come a long way since then. I seem to knit in spurts though. I knit when I move to colder climes. I knit a lot in Pennsylvania then slowed down considerably in Arizona. Since moving to Denver, I find myself picking up my yarn and needles more and more. It also helps me to stay awake at night while watching tv. This is what I am currently working on. A pretty little scarf for next winter. I saw a model made up in the LYS and decided I had to make it. I didn't have the correct size needles but knew I could find some yarn in my vast stash. So the needles and pattern came home with me. I dug out a skein of yarn from the basement and this is what I have so far. The yarn is a sock yarn and there is enough in the skein to knit the whole scarf. I love it when a plan comes together!
