Hello Knitees,

Any of you "Newbies" get excited over the little things?

I just made fingerless mitts and wound my yarn using the demo "How to Wind a Center Pull Ball", (I thought this would take time to do right) BUT IT WAS SO EASY AND WORKED WITHOUT A HITCH (no snags at all) !!!

Yeah, I keep shoving stuff in my dh's face too, poor man. When I do something wrong and :!!!: he always asks me what's wrong then empathizes at least.

My biggest thrill is understanding a pattern. If I can figure out what the pattern means, I am :roflhard: .

Whenever I make a noise, my mom gets all excited. "Did you mess up?!" but she doesn't care when I do something and it comes out nice.

All she keeps saying is, "You better hurry up," about Andee's pattern. (I have one more sleeve.)

I've been knitting for over a year now and still like others have to show dh everything i do! Even when it's a basic scarf, I run to him and go "lookeee what I can do!" :woot:
he does get excited though when I learn something new, and he even has a whole list of things he wants me to make him! :roflhard:

if he's feeling snarky, he says, "good, now you can sell it."

He shouldn't get snarky at a woman with sharp needles and scissors. :rofl:

When I made my first cables I just stared at them for a full five minutes. I live alone so had no one else to share my excitement with. I've tried to show my cat things, but she just thinks it's for chewing. I may have called my boyfriend on the phone to squeal about my first cables though. I did show them to him on the weekend and he couldn't see them because he didn't quite understand what cables were. I had to show them the twisty bit and then he was like, "Oh."

I was also very excited a couple weekends ago when I first dyed my yarn. I would just stare at it. And touch it. Sometimes, I'd sniff it. I used Kool-Aid, so the smell hung around for a bit. And then I would go into the bathroom (where it was drying) every so often to stare at it. And when I came home from work the first thing in my head was "I need to look at my dyed yarn."

I'm hardly a newbie, but when I do a stitch pattern that looks really cool, or see yarn that is gorgeous, or see something take shape with shortrows and such, I'm still impressed and stop to admire it.

:teehee: Everybody in my family is subjected to my knitted items. Last time my parents came over I had everything they hadn't seen before on the table for them to look at. It's a joke now, my dad walks in and says to me "ok, where's the knitted stuff that I have to look at!". :roflhard: Every phone call is started with "so how's the (insert project) going?". I'm fortunate to have a really great support base from my husband and family. I'm sure they're sick of looking at my stuff but they put on a good front for my sake. :rofl:

I am a newbie too and I get very excited when I make something. Especially when I made my first DPNs project. It was such a huge thing for me, I woke up my husband to show off my loverly hat. :teehee: I've made another hat since then and I've started 2 others. And two scarves are OTNs.

I am so excited when I finish something, so proud of what I've done. I have a husband who'll take the time to look at and appreciate what I've done. Even if he's not at all interested, he makes a good show of it. :teehee:
