Phancy...New Year!

2010 brought along with it some really great particular, my wedding! Wedding-planning was the vehicle that got me going with all my craft projects, and now I can't stop :-P

I learned so much last year, and I'm looking forward to more in 2011.

My latest adventure was in knitting - first time knitting, and I made 2 scarves. The first one wasn't so great to be honest. It looked sloppy and I just couldn't figure out the patterns. But I made one for my new Mother-in-law for the holidays, and if you don't look too closely, it turned out pretty well :-P
(The scarf ended up being 24-25 stitches wide with a knit stitch bordering the main stockinette stitch. I forgot to take a photo, so I'll have my MIL take one and send it. )

I'm making one for my mom now too. It's gonna take awhile, because it makes my hands hurt...and honestly the repetition of knitting bores me.

But I started it, so I'm gonna finish it - good new years resolution, eh? :)
