Confessions of a Left-Hand Knitter

Exploring the Possibilities

Day 5, 6, and 7

on April 29, 2013

I originally began this blog-a-thon with the intentions of becoming a better blogger, having fun, and doing something new. What I didn’t plan was the time of the blog. I went out-of-town to visit my pregnant Bestie and my god son. I had a blast and got to really relax. I was trying to complete day 5 on Friday; however, coming up with and idea to complete the criteria proved to be more difficult than I thought. After a weekend long journey and inspiration from other bloggers, I finally came up with ideas to finish the week out.

4KCBWDAY5 Something A Bit Different

Day 5 instructs use to create a wordless blog or something other than words about knitting. So I have been having the tattoo itch and really wanting to get something cute and small. I also want to have a visible tattoo. I have two tattoos, one on the back of my neck and one on my left ribs/side. I was thinking that my next tattoo should be knitting themed. Once a week, I will showcase an awesome knitting tattoo.

4KCBWDAY6 – A Tool To Covet

As the name suggest, what tool(s) do I love and cherish the most? I would have to say my knitting books and YouTube. I am still a (advance) beginner and need to sometimes refer to YouTube or my knitting books for support.  The two books I cherish the most is Stitch N’ Bitch: Knitter’s Handbook by Debbie Stoller and Knitter’s Companion Deluxe Edition w/DVD by Vicki Square. These books are awesome and very simple to follow. I recently brought a swift and currently awaiting my winder. I  think that theses are the next tools that will be used a lot in my life!

4KCBWDAY7- Looking Forward

This is the last post of the knitting/crocheting blog week. The blog basically asked about the future projects or skills I planned to complete or attempt. I hope to tackle color projects, sweaters,  different yarns (lamb, camel-hair, mohair, bamboo, etc), and two at a time socks.  I also hope that next year, I will be better prepared for this blogging adventure. I have learned a lot from this experience and feel that my blogging have been taking to the next level. I think over the year, I will revisit some of the topics, to improved as well as try different ways to relay information. But I enjoyed this experience and I hope you did as well!
