My first Loom Knitted hat. I started on Christmas and finished today. I'm so proud of myself.

Another pic of the beret.

This is another beret same as the other one just different colors. This one is a Christmas gift. I used gold, burgundy and white, Red Heart, 4 ply worsted weight yarn.

I'm so happy to finish another pair of socks. These are my first pair of worsted weight slippers and magic loop. Knitted with a size 5 knitpick interchangeable needles. I'm very happy with my finished results.

Finally finished Queen Kahuna, Crazy Toe and Heel Socks. I love the way they look. I wanted the heel to be red as well, but wasnt sure when to change the color. I used Bernat Sox Yarn, which I really like working with, but it is now discontinued. wah wah A few sites still sale it (www.herrschners.com). I used a US 2 (Addis) needles to knit these babies up. I'm so proud of my accomplishments. Took me forever and a day to get them done, but well work knitting each and every stitch. I really made a mess of the pattern on the leg og the sock (the white portion) . The lace rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks, on page 44. The next go around I will only knit when I can focus using a pattern. :-)

My first magic loop sock. I used worsted weight yarn and the directions from the magic loop book. Knitted using US 5 knitpick needles. The yarn is red heart, Buff Fleck. I feel crazy putting Art #, lol. No one corrected me. :-)

My first magic loop sock using worsted weight yarn. It's knitting up so quickly. Will make great slippers. I love the color, it's Art by red heart. Using the knitpick, US 5, circular needles.
A heel view. I used the slipstitch heel and for the leg using the lace rib from the Sensational Knitted Sock book. I wanted to make the heel red, but wasn't sure where to change the color at.

Here is how far I am on my first pair of toe up, Queen Kahuna's Crazy Toe and Heel socks (that was a mouth full).

My progress on my first Crazy Toe and Heel sock. I'm using Bernat Sox yarn, Red (#0705) Price: $1.27, per 50 gr skein. A very good price and it is knitting up nice. Off to change the color to white. My goal is to have the toe, heel and ribbing red and the rest of the sock white.

These are the mini hats I've been knitting. I'm going to make more using different colors. They don't take no time to knit up. Aren't they so cute?

The view of the socks from the back.

Here is a pic of the heel. My son wouldn't stay still for the pictures. It's a short row heel using the garter stitch.

Here are the finished socks. This is one project I'm glad I'm finished with. I made these socks on 2 circulars following the 2 socks on 2 circulars by Nenah Galati. I used Cervinia Cervinia Calzetteria yarn from www.smileysyarn.com Have no clue what my next product will be.

My first try at two socks on two circulars. I'm using the video by Nenah Galati. The heel of the sock on the left is flipped noticed once I posted, but they both are the same size. I love working on circulars. I doubt if I go back to dpns (double pointed needles). For the socks I'm using Cervinia Calzetteria sock yarn from www.smileysyarns.com the color is charcoal heather grey. I'm so proud of my success. I should be finished very soon.

I really enjoy crocheting this tam (beret) for myself. Was a very short project. As you can see on my blog I like doing short projects. Things I can do in less than a week.

I wanted to crochet for a bit. Here is a weekend project. Could have been one day, but I wanted to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Here is the hat I made for my son. I like the swirl portion.

Was working on blending images. I really think this turned out nice. It looks like a book cover to me. This is my youngest son in his younger days. He is 8 years old now.

Here are my first pair of socks. Took me 4 days to make them. I was so excited.

My first mini sock. Isn't it so cute?

Can you see the teddy bear on the wash cloth?

I guess you can see I have been on a role making things for my coworker.

Here are the baby booties I made for my coworker.

Here is another gift for my coworker.

Here is my favorite image of myself. I love the technique I choose. I scraplifted this technique from Emma on DSP (Digital Scrapbook Place).
