More Knitting....

Originally uploaded by triviaqueen
A while ago, while I was furiously working to finish the Doctor Who Scarf, Kiddo asked me if I would knit her a pair of slippers. "Sure!" I said. Then I knit a bunch of baby hats... and then I took a break.

Soon enough I was itching for something else to knit. "I know!" I thought, "Slippers!"

So, I dug out the pattern (a very tattered photocopy of a "free leaflet" from Patton's -- "Speedy Slippers to Knit") and grabbed some happy kid-friendly multicoloured yarn and started knitting. I had them done in no time and she just loves them.

Now that I have finished the slippers I can start on something else... something for me, I think! I want to learn to knit in the round (circulars or maybe even -- gasp! -- double points) so I figure the perfect entry into that is to make my own fangrrl wear: a Jayne Cobb hat (from Firefly, for those not in the know).

In the meantime, I got an invite to Ravelry but not until after I had already added the Stitchbook application to my Facebook account. So, yeah, I can track my knitting projects a little more effectively now. Also those will help to ensure that this won't turn into "Cheryl's Knitting Blog."

Those slippers bring back memories. My husband's grandmother knitted well into her 90's. We all had a steady supply of "doppas" as she called them.
