A Knifty Change

It's quite a shame I keep letting days go by without posting more often, since it's so enjoyable for me to document what I'm working on, to keep myself up to date and accountable plus just maybe inspire a present or future reader to craft and create.

Anyway what I mean to say before I forget is that, unfortunately, because I predicted that bringing my sewing machine to school for another two weeks might mean that it won't get used the whole time, again, I decided that this week I'd bring my knitting basket! Don't worry though, I'm not about to jump ship and become a knitting blog entirely, but this just fits the circumstances for now. I'm currently using my handy-dandy Knifty Knitter circular and rectangular looms to make some crafty progress while away from my machine and wonderfully growing fabric stash. On my red loom I have a hat almost completed using Caron Simply Soft yarn in Light Country Blue and Dark Country Blue together. I apologize for the terrible phone picture below, but in the very near future I'm going to purchase a new actual camera and it will make up for this, I promise!

This hat plus a few others left at home and hopefully a couple more made this week and next will all be sent out to Craft Hope's Project 21 which I mentioned a couple of posts ago. I can't wait so send in my completed hats and scarves and see the wonderful photos of kids so happy to receive them.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of my most recent, amazing fabric order from Form and Fabric which I purchased with birthday fabric money from my parents. I'll have to tell you more about my new fabric when I'm back home again!


  1. Huh. I've never used a loom to knit anything. Is it hard? I think you can post as many knitting posts as you'd like ;) I love pretty yarny things! But I love fabric, too.

  2. Oh goodness I didn't see your comment until now! I've got to get more familiar with Blogger and Google+. Anyway it's funny because I tried rather diligently to learn knitting the traditional way from my grandmother, but it didn't stick. Then I was given the round looms as a gift one year and I've loved them since. Let's just say buying yarn was the precursor to fabric and my current addiction, so I've got plenty of yarn to use!
