here are a couple of things i just finished knitting. the gloves are the knitty knucks which i made for my cousin. he LOVED them which made me happy :). i was able to finish both in about 4 days. i used caron simply soft yarn. the scarf is made with patons cha cha yarn and is in garter stitch. i made it for my cousins birthday which took me only about 4 hours to make give or take.
also that ripple blanket was my first crochet project that i made for my parents which i'm really proud of :) i was able to finish it in about 12-14 days and its about 60 inches wide and across. it is laying on a queen size bed.

thanks for looking :)

Beautiful work! I recently made some Knucks myself -- such a fun pattern, isn't it? Yours look great. I love the blanket!!

You must be one speedy crocheter! Great afghan!

Great Knucks too! Isn't it great when people really appreciate and love what you knit for them!

And fabulous ChaCha scarf! I've never tried the fun fur-type yarns myself, and I know some people don't care for it at all, but with those results, it might be worth it for me to try, I know my 7 y/o DD would LOVE something with it!

Ohh I love the afghan! :inlove:

thanks :)

actually i found crocheting much easier and faster then knitting while i was making the afghan. i found a great site like amys with videos on how to do all the stitches or i wouldn;t have been able to do it without it :)

11-07-2006, 02:49 PM
i am at work now and i have the site saved on my home pc, i will post it for you when i get home. it is exciting learning new ways to use yarn :teehee:

Thank you for the website. It is amazing... I love it and it is funny that the founder of that website's name is AMI!

I start to believe that ALL AMY/ AMIs in this world are the greatest for craft teaching supplies!!!!
