Learning New Techniques

Now, I was at the point in my knitting adventure that I was open to learning more new things.

I decided to try felting. So I made a Booga Bag. It wasn't hard at all!

Having made one bag, I decided to try a different style this time. So I made a little lacy purse for one of my piano students, using some Berroco Cotton Twist.

My knitting was getting better and better, so I decided to tackle socks! I looked in the knitting store, finding a good, simple book called "Learn to Knit Socks". It was great. I made two pairs of socks for me and my hubby, using sportweight yarn and size 6 dpns. (

After mastering socks, I pulled out some REAL sock yarn, and some tiny dpns, and learned how to make them too!

I even managed to get the stripes to match!

By this time, I felt like I was the "QUEEN OF THE WORLD" (tee-hee!)
