Selfish Post

So this one is all about me and how I'm totally addicted to knitting and now (gasp) crocheting! One of the girls in my Sunday School class suggested that I give it up for lent :)

Steve got me the coveted Denise Needle Kit for Valentine's Day. I am so happy! I love using the circular needles for everything now.

I'm into washcloths and they are so easy and fun. I just finished the double cherry one today in about 2 hours. I'm bummed about the big yellow one. It's supposed to be a flower garden....Hmmmm. I followed it correctly and even used the needle size I was supposed to.

My first crocheted washcloth is pretty wonky, but I plan to get better as I go. I'm keeping it for myself anyway. Since I'm a girl with no dishwasher besides me, it's perfect!

Here is the patter for double cherries and springing up flowers

Here is a picture of my lovely mother-in-law with her hat. I made the same hat for Rachel.

The moral of this story is: if you know me, you're likely to get some knit or crocheted gift...or many of them.

Loving my hat! I have been wearing it quite bit as we have had snow this week. Your washcloths look so great. I love the cherry one. I need to practice knitting more.:)

PS it certainly is not selfish as many of us have been recipients of your beautiful handi-work.
