I'm new to this craft thing. But, I've been inspired by Jill's great craft blog to share some of my projects with you.
And so, for your viewing enjoyment, here are pictures of some things I've made. Unfortunately most of these pictures were taken using my cell phone, so the quality is not very good.
Hats and scarf:
I just finished this hat. It has a peak and a cute pattern:
This hat is made out of silk stuff that a friend gave me. I found it very hard to work with. This is my second attempt to make something out of it. My friend wanted a "spring hat". This is what I came up with:
This one is my first hat. I think it turned out well:
Scarf (modeled reluctantly by Hubby):
The second hat I made:
I've made a bunny (for my nephew), an octopus (for my niece), a turtle (for monkey), an alien (for buddy), and a chick. I only have a picture of Alien so far.
I haven't completed many knitting projects. I like crochet better. It's much faster and more satisfying.
I've made several. Could only locate 2. The kids love to play with these.
I've made several of these, and given some away. They're made of glass beads and are meant to hang in the window to catch the light.
I also have some earrings and a few more necklaces and bracelets. Some were given away. Some I can't quite locate... They must be in storage. I'm not very good at this yet, someday I'd like to take a class in jewelry making.
I have a really good time crocheting and I've been quite productive at it lately. My next project is a hat for my mother, and one for my mother-in-law. I'm also planning on attempting a child's sweater. Should be fun. Thanks with putting up with all the low quality pictures.
Do you have a favourite craft? What do you think of the knitting vs. crochet debate - is one better than the other?
