Grits and Purls

Spinning yarns about the grit of life

floppy_new_LookI couldn’t contain my smile when I weaved the end of the yarn through the loops at the top of the piece I had just knitted and pulled it tight. Much to my surprise…it looked like a hat! The unknitting, rescue of dropped stitches and feeling that I was an absolute klutz all melted away as the formless cotton yarn formed itself into a hat. Thanks to the patient coaching of my knitting partners Isobel and Kelly, Floppy Dog now will now have warm ears all winter, and I have a new hobby.

  1. Congratulations, Michele, on the successful completion of the first of many projects to come! Note that, if you’re like me, you will probably have a handful of projects that you NEVER finish, but they’re still fun to start. 🙂

    Great Job Michele!
    You did that quickly. It took me a looooong time to finish my first project.

      I made a hat and scarf for a small, stuffed dog, and I had a lot of help. And a lot of wise advice to start with something small and fun…
