Intro and my to do list

Thanks for creating this place to get inspired.

I'm Samantha, a SAHM to two great kids, who stays sane by knitting and crocheting. I've been an active crocheter for about 3 years but learned when I was 10yrs old. I learned to knit about 3 months ago. I'm also learning to spin. Basically, I'm a fiber geek.

I have no idea if will get anything done because I am a slow knitter.

This what I'd like to tackle not necessarily in that order:

  • Dye my own yarn
  • Make something with cables either scarf or this bag here.
  • a pair of socks with a pattern
  • something with a lace design - scarf or shawl or knitted doily
  • Knit my first hat - Probably the Hermione Bobble Hat in Charmed Knits or the Totoro Bonnet on Hello Yarns
  • Do something using the duplicate stitch
  • Knit with beads - the skull cuffs in one of the SnB books for my son
  • Make myself a row counter bracelet
  • Knit with wire and beads maybe a bracelet or to decorate a votive
  • Knit my first sweater

You have a bunch of cool stuff on there! I'll definitely be watching to see what you come up with!

If you try the socks, I have to warn ya, they are very addictive! I did my first pair about a year and a half a go and I've been hooked, they're so much fun after you get the hang of it!
