Perservering

I tried knitting once before, and that attempt went much the same way as my first attempt at crochet: exceedingly poorly.

Really, I think a manatee would have better knitting skill than me!

Still – I got there in the end with crochet, and I think that maybe, someday, hopefully, probably, (ok probably not), I might get there with knitting.

So I picked up my knitting sticks and gave it another shot. And it was reassuring to know that I still suck at it! But I’m nothing if not stubborn, and my ultimate goal is to be able to knit socks like the lovely heyporkchop, so I need to perservere.

I think I’ve mastered the knit stitch. I’m making a chunky scarf!

 

 

Other things I have made this week:

  • Enjoying carving some stamp commissions.
  • I basted my zig zag quilt and can’t wait to get quilting!
  • Cappuccino fudge cheesecake for my mama’s birthday.

Choc ripple biscuit base, dark chocolate tia maria ganache, espresso cheesecake, and sweetened sour cream vanilla topping.

 

Next on my list:

  • Quilt my zig zag quilt!
  • Far Flung Bee June blocks
  • Make an i-cord necklace (eek! DPNs!)
