Quickie Project

Working on some samples and this is what I came up with right now...

Perfect for Valentine's day, eh? <3
It's been awhile since I've worked on a quickie project. Most of them have been a little bit more complicated..maybe not by an expert knitter but for a beginner, most are stretching the skills.  This one is really easy!

Another knitting joke...

Why did the monster knit herself 3 socks?

She grew another foot

Teaching at Michaels????

I was contacted by the CYCA Craft Yarn Council of America and was asked if I still was interested in teaching knitting. I was surprised because I think I filled out that form on their website before the summer!  I asked Brent a bunch of questions, and decided, ...."WHY NOT?"....

So, I am working on my certification!
I have made several squares already, and these are just the ones I pulled out so far.
I have completed 5" squares
Knit - Purl - Stockinette - Basketweave - Moss - Cable and working on a baby ripple square. I don't like how some of these curl at the edges, so I MIGHT take them apart and do a little edge on them so it doesn't curl. 

Anyways...this is what I've been working samples for a class!!! OOH my..what did I get myself into???

stay tuned!
