Knitting

It’s a Cinch!

Hey I finished my first ever knitting project!! I’m still working through the Craftsy Knit Lab course, but I wanted to practice the few things I learned so far before moving forward in the class and trying to learn the other stitches. I found the “It’s a Cinch” headband pattern on Ravelry and thought it would be the perfect project for me to start with.

I’m so glad I attempted a super easy project first! I never got discouraged or overwhelmed with this headband, so Knitting and I are still friends thus far 😉 I’m still pretty proud of myself for FINALLY picking up a pair of knitting needles and giving it a go. I’m in a strange position with knitting after working at a fabric and yarn boutique: I know a lot about needles and yarn, but I never knew what to do with them until recently! It feels good to be able to put the two together and actually make something now.

So what’s next?! Well I definitely need to learn some other stitches, so I better get back to the Craftsy course and then move on to another project!

I expect everyone had some nice time off for the Holidays and enjoyed time with family. I know I did. Vermont is getting pounded with snow right now! It’s putting a serious damper on my ability to take blog photos, but the snowboarding has been awesome so I can’t complain too much. I’m waiting for the weather to break so I can FINALLY take photos of my latest sewing project!! Soon I hope…

 

Until next time!
