Confessions of a Left-Hand Knitter

Exploring the Possibilities

4KCBWDAY2 A Mascot Project/Updates

Day 2 (back on track) is about picking projects that represent either the house itself (i.e. the monkey) or qualities that embody the house. I stumbled across another blogger doing the same blog-a-thon and they choose a wonderful as well as perfect  mascot… the family guy monkey!  It’s so awesome check it out here: http://cursingandcrafting.wordpress.com/2013/04/23/4kcbwday2-house-mascot/. Due to a mascot being chosen, I am going to focus on option two, projects that embody the house. Luckily (cause I am awesome like that) the projects I am currently working on are good representations of my quest to increase my skills as a knitter.

A lot has happened since I started this blog. My shawl is 50% done, I started the dream sweater, Jacqueline  and I started a basic sock. I know ridicules! But I just couldn’t wait to start these projects. I originally planed to just start the sock because I had progressed far in my shawl. But then the sock proved to be too boring and was killing me with how slow the productions was going. I realized that although DPs (double-pointed needles) are awesome (for some projects); however, the next time I do socks, I think I am going to try two at a time on a circular needle.  Anyhoo, this lead me to throw caution to the wind and start the sweater project. I figured that I want to learn to make a sweater and I need to just do it. I am visual learner and need to be able to see my triumphs as well as my mistakes. The house I choose and the reasons for participating in this week blog event is to increase my skills as a knitter. Below are pictures of my progress on all three projects:

So far… so good.

As you can see, I have cast on many different projects to enhance my skills and to continue my knitting obsession. I will continue to keep ya posted on each project, included my left hand substitutions as well as lefty observations. I will also be doing some posts on my yarn hauls and future projects. Enjoy blog week! 🙂
