I love knitting and crocheting. When I was little I used to make all my own doll clothes because Mom and Dad could never afford the fancy (and pricey) Barbie clothes. So, either my dolls were going to go naked or I was going to make their clothes. And, I couldn't let Barbie go on a date with Ken in her birthday suit...so, I figured out a way to keep her clothed.
I started crocheting. I never followed a pattern. Heck, I never even had one or would have known how to read one with all that strange coding. So, I just started and didn't stop until I'd figured out a way to make the yarn work its way into an outfit. And, that's the way I knit today. I have trouble following patterns. I try. Honest I do. But...I fail miserably.
This weekend I started a hat for a baby shower and a blanket. The only thing is . . . I wish my fingers were faster. I didn't finish the blanket in time :( and I'm still knitting away . . .
