It turns out that we weren’t as housebound this week and we didn’t lose power at the house or the shop. We came into work yesterday for a couple of hours in the hopes we could make some money and have a change of scenary. I was pretty content to stay home and work on the mittens I just started but Kev was going stir crazy. It would be nice if he would take up knitting as well. haha Speaking of the mittens, I finally settled on a pattern and actually got one of them done. I modified the pattern a little bit because I swear I have the smallest hands ever and if I would have followed the pattern the mittens would have been huge on me. I suppose that is the appeal of making them myself.
I feel kind of bad because I haven’t picked up a crochet hook in weeks. I mainly taught myself to knit so that I had more variety in patterns and I was looking for a challenge. After a month of knitting I am sad to admit that I actually like doing it more. I would say the biggest plus to knitting is that I can do it for longer periods of time without hurting my hands and now that I have gotten the hang of it I think can finish a project faster. Of course next month I might be right back to crocheting and might forget all about knitting. haha
