When I first signed up with blogger, the handle's original name was laurasquiltcreations.blogspot.com then it occurred to me-- i do more than just quilt.
Now please, don't get me wrong, I LOVE everything about quilting! But my mother, as a teenager taught me how to crochet then few years later, knitting got the best of me and I taught myself how to knit using pencils....what can you say--i got excited!!
Since then, I've always said crochet is my favorite, quilting second and knitting a distant third. There was just something about knitting that I didn't get. You know how in high school people said "If you love algebra, you'll hate geometry...if you love geometry you'll hate algebra." I thought knitting and crocheting were like that and I just so happened to like crocheting more.
I don't know though because around October my mind started to change regarding knitting and whatever I didn't like about it started to go away. I love it! I've been knitting a lot lately. This Christmas I didn't have a whole lotta money so I made a lot of my gifts.
This is the first of many. This is for my bro, William. Typical Dude Hat. I used the Two Movie Hat Pattern
. It was the first time I use double pointed needles. Noooooooooot bad!
William has a small head (he's a 6'3 toothpick) so he'll be fine in it. He has a job at Pop a Lock where he is sometimes asked to go out in the middle of the night so while he's in South Carolina doesn't mean he won't get chilly.
Wait...he has a uniform hat. whatever. He'll still use it!!
And this is for my sister in law, Cathy. I'm nervous as hell about it.
It might be too big for her...I hope it doesn't slide off her head!
Here is a picture
I hope they like their presents.
