It’s only been a short while since I finally got past the frustration of learning how to knit. I now can’t seem to put my knitting needles down for a minute! I continually work on my hats during lunch at work, I try to get some knitting in at night. I’ve got the knit-stitch down well-enough to relax my concentation a bit while I’m doing it. All-in-all, knitting has become a bit of a meditative act for me.
Last Wednesday I got an email from Amanda about a photo shoot she’d be having on Friday for a set of twins! She asked if I had any finished hats she might be able to use for the shoot. I had a few finished but none that matched. I told her I’d try but I didn’t think I’d be able to have a hat finished by Thursday night to bring to her. (I wouldn’t be able to bring it to her in the middle of the day on Friday because I work too far from her house.)
I had it in my head that I would start knitting from the moment I got home ’til I went to sleep, at lunch the next day and when I got home that afternoon. Somehow I became a knitting demon that Wednesday night and managed to start and finish this little hat to match the previous little candy hat that I’d made! Needless to say, I was feeling pretty proud of myself.
Better yet, though Amanda wasn’t able to get the twins to wear both hats at the same time, she did get a hat on little Savannah long enough to take this amazing picture! (As well as many other cute pictures!)
While I was at lunch today I visited the craft store and got myself some new knitting needles to go with some sock yarn I picked up (that won’t be used for socks) – so I’m off to do some more knitting!
