Knitting

So I finally uploaded pictures of some of my projects. I have a few more photos to take and upload, but here's a start.

This was my first project. I gave it to a friend as a shower gift and am trying to finish a similar one for Baby BenSpark, but with ducky buttons.

Here is a detail of the buttons.

My next big project was for my friend's son's third birthday.

And the button detail again - buttons make the sweater most of the time!

I will add some photos of some of the hats and other things I have made soon. I am working on a blanket for Baby BenSpark at the moment and will add photos of that when I am done. Hopefully you've enjoyed my new hobby - I sure love it!

Stephen, the moose buttons came from AC Moore. They have some really cute buttons there! :-)

Thanks, Mo! It's so much fun to work on my projects! I got five rows of my newest project done on the drive to and from IKEA yesterday.
When you have babies I'll knit them lots of things! :-)

One of these days, I will figure out how to knit, But in the meantime, I will be buying up every moose button that AC Moore has! I love moose second to cats!

Retta,
My Local Yarn Shop has cute buttons - and so does AC Moore. The pewter teddy bears just melted my heart!

Christine,
Check out your local yarn shop, they probably offer classes. Even Michaels and AC Moore offer crafting classes. And knittinghelp.com is a great reference!
