Knitting projects

I am very lucky to have wonderful in-laws, especially my mother-in-law.  I have always been interested in crafty hobbies, but my mom was never into that kind of stuff.  So I was happy when I met my husband's mom, who is an artist.  She is amazing at whatever she tries.  About three years ago, she got really interested in knitting and she taught me.  I really enjoy it, and try to do as much as possible.  Somehow I acquired a ton of yarn with nothing in particular to do with it.  I decided to knit some things for charity.  So far I have made 10 baby hats and I am starting on some cushion things for pets in shelters to lay on.  My favorite hat is the yellow and blue stripes. This is the first time I have knit something with more than one color, and I think it looks pretty good! I also like the yellow ones that have hearts and diamonds on them.

  1. Hey Amanda,

    How come I can't see the pictures? I would love to see your little knitted hats, but the pictures don't show up... :(
