Something to keep my hands busy

A couple of weeks ago I alluded to having a slightly addictive personality. At the time I was referring to my penchant for spending time with "Shaun" my virtual sheep. One of the other things that I have recently been delving into is the ancient art of knitting.

My mom was a furious knitter, and I still have many of her odd creations. Colour schemes where not her thing.

I digress .....

On and off over the years I've picked up my needles and carried on the tradition. However, for the first time in all my knitting experiences, I've knitted something that wasn't a sweater or scarf.

I knitted bunnies - in sweaters.

I was amazed at the joy of being able to start a finish a project within a couple days. Not weeks like a sweater would take me.

I am presently at the finishing stages of a sweater I started post-bunnies, but I'm already looking for my next 'animal' object to divide and conqueror. But no matter what I chose you can be 'darn' sure it will never, ever, ever be socks. On this ground I firmly stand - I will never knit a pair of socks.

Bunnies in sweaters = cutest thing ever. Very cool you made these.

I would really like to learn how to knit one day. But think I might not have the patience. Perhaps you'd just have to teach me! Love the bunnies! I also love that you were highlighted in my followers today!! :)

Knitting is easy to learn. Awkward at first, but after the fingers stop cramping - you'll be zipping along madly.
And thank you ladies for your kind words.
