Hello Everyone..knitters and crafters. Welcome to my creative corner. I would like to archive knitting projects that i have done in the past and will be doing in the future. I picked up knitting 12 years ago during the early stages of my pregnancy with our 2nd child. (my hubby and I now have 3) I was put on early bedrest and i needed something to do. Not that I did not have anything to do. I was taking care of our eldest daughter who at that time was almost 2 yrs old. So, i purchased a book called Knitting for Dummies and started the knitting journey. Of course I got frustrated figuring out how to cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch and working with the needles until my fingers got tired. But, I never gave up. I kept on going. Too lazy to check gauge in the beginning and i learned the hard way. I am still lazy to check gauge ;-). Now, I am a happy knitter <3. I find it very therapeutic. I simply enjoy creating things and giving it to family and friends as gifts. I hope I can pass it on to my daughters ages 14 and 7. Our eldest showed interest and knitted her teacher a scarf in 5th grade but the interest died down. Our son who is now12 tried as well at age 9 but got frustrated with it. I still have yet to tackle making other things other than scarves, afghans, beanies, gloves and more scarves :-). At the moment, I have just started a City Girl Infinity Scarf ( oh yes, another scarf). Picked up a free pattern at ravelry.com by Melanie Lok.
