I love hand knit and hand crochet items and would love to see pics! I have not yet developed these skills so I live vicariously through you.

 

Share please!

Ooh, I'm excited to see pictures! I just taught myself to crochet this past month, and am working on a set of dishcloths and, if I can figure it out, a pot holder, to give my very dear friend as a "thanks for being so awesome" gift. I'll edit with pictures in a bit.

Haven't started, but I thought I'd shake up my hat-and-mittens routine and challenge myself by making these zombies. I'd love to check back in and post pics of my own.

I actually decided to learn to knit, and worked a bunch of different stitches before I decided to crochet some xmas gifts, an infinity scarf for my sister is complete. Sorry I don't have pics-because I put it away where I won't forget/lose it. I plan on doing more for my mother and grandmother and so on. I love the site/youtube channel new stitch a day. But also I just go through pinterest and try to find stuff that peaks my interest.

I'm working on a glow-in-the-dark scarf for my firstborn, fingerless mitts for me, and a blanket for my youngest. No, I don't have time for this! LOL  I do things the old-fashioned way by bringing along a basket of handwork to social get-togethers/playdates. That way I can actually do my hobby, which I enjoy, and resist fiddling on the smartphone. (I suspect these things are what kept us busy before technology came along ;))

 

BTW I highly recommend ravlery.com if you want to learn knitting/crochet! It's a fantastic forum for learning and liking projects.

Love the pumpkin set!  Reminds me of when my little guy was born last Oct. 

 

I'm knitting myself a pair of thigh-high stockings.  And yup, I'm kind of crazy :flipped.  I have one finished!

Haven't made diaper covers in a while, but knitted longies were the best for jammie bottoms and over training pants. I made these for ds1 a couple years ago. They held up great, even with lots of use, ds2 should be fitting into them in a few months.

I used the Picky Pants Pattern from Little Turtle Knits.  I highly recommend it.  It's very well written, has tons of options, and is formatted in such a way that makes it easy to knit the different sizes, without having to go to town with a highlighter all over the pages.

I want to learn to knit, maybe this winter. I've said that the past three winters though....

I can't post pics mobile, but I am in the throes of crocheting Carlito pattern hats for the nieces and nephews for Christmas. Most need to be finished before Thanksgiving when I'll see that side of the family....

to see how different it would turn out ...

I just started these socks. The yarn is a cotton silk blend that shimmers - the photo doesn't really do it justice. I really posted this just to prove to myself that I could figure out how to post a picture from my Iphone in my post - never tried it before. I must admit, I am rather proud of myself! About the photo bit, more than the socks, I mean. I taught myself to knit last summer, and have never made anything but socks. I just love the different yarns available, wearing fabulous socks, and the calming process of knitting. I wear sandals year 'round, and in winter I love showing off my hand knit socks. Yes, I know this is a major fashion faux pas - my teenage children mock me mercilessly - I flaunt it rebelliously!
