In actuality, I only work on these at a maximum an hour a day if that. Most of my time is spent emailing people about informational interviews, making follow up calls, sending my resume to companies, researching companies, and asking friends/ acquaintances for leads...I'm really not a bum.
But at least out of this quiet time in my life some products are being made. Mine and Dale's necks will survive the winter.
This is my first scarf. I believe I started it in 2005 but didn't know a thing about knitting and wasn't really that "into" it yet. I completed it in October just so I could use those needles. It is now worn by our stuff pug names Puggle. (Yes, I still own stuffed animals...and name them...don't judge)
This was my second scarf/ project. I found a pattern I liked, began understanding all the different stitches, picked out some soft yarn, and Voila. It is a little short but Dale doesn't complain.
I made these slippers right before Christmas and contemplated making a pair for all the women in my family as stocking stuffers because they are fairly easy and fast to knit, but decided against it. I didn't want the holiday pressure. If I make these again, I think I'm going to add a strap to make them Mary Janes so they don't fall off as easy. However, I was VERY proud of these since they actually required some measuring and aren't one long strip of cloth.
This item is my most recent addition. I completed it today. It is a little purse/ bag for Corey whose birthday was last week. I got her a little something and wanted something special to put it in. Dale suggested I knit something so I tried out this new pattern I really liked (found on the purl bee) and this is what resulted. I am really proud that I was finally able to use this yellow yarn which I purchased forever ago for a rag doll project. I think it turned out well.
