Question of the Week #10
What Olympic event would best describe you knitting/knitting style?
Any of the short races from swimming to track. i seem to accomplish more by doing shorter projects than long tedious things. usually i start a long, big project and it never gets done. i have lots of things started that i haven't finished but on the flip side i have tons of felted bags and baby items done! short and quick that seems to be est for me!
What is the best thing you've ever received in the mail/post?
i think honestly the best box i ever recieved was when we first figured out about knitpicks. omg that was the best box! we ordered sparingly, not knowing what to expect but received a wonderful surprise! good quality wool at wonderful prices! i think by the next week i had put in another order!
I’m sure most of us have a proudest moment when it comes to knitting. A project or technique that you’ve tackled and completed beautifully. What is your proudest knitting moment??
well, i have a couple and both have happened within the last year. one was i finally broke down and made my first baby sweater and it turned out sooo cute! it was my first garment overall! so proud. the other was the fiber trends felted clogs. i am not sure what it was about those. the pattern just seemed daunting and then you had to make 2! whew!
And on the flip side? What is the one thing that you can’t get right? What is that one project that you’ve never been able to complete? Or that you did complete but then hid away instantly because it was too embarrassing?
i can't get cables right to save my life. i always have this huge ladder one one of the sides! there is this simple cable scarf that i have wanted to make for myself that i just can't get to work becuase it has a cable down the middle. i even have some beautiful misty alpaca for it and just can't seem to get it! i made myself some knitting goals for this year and conquering that scarf is one of them. so maybe i will get to it still!
