Knit, Knit, Purl

Have you ever picked up a hobby after a long hiatus and wonder why you ever stopped doing it?  Lately, I have been knitting up a storm and it makes me very happy.  I used to knit pretty infrequently, picking it up every once in a while when the mood struck, but often I would get bored halfway through a project and abandon it.  Large items take too long to make, I wasn’t pleased with the result, when would I ever use the item in question?

Over the past few months though, I have spent many an evening perfectly content watching TV or a movie, with a pile of yarn in front of me.  I have even been commissioned to do a few pieces and have some fun ideas for the year ahead.  Here are some of the pieces I’ve completed over the past year.  I’ve also included links to the patterns in the captions in case you want to try them out yourself!

Note: Yes, some of them are crocheted but I was proud of them so I figured I’d mix them in there.

I made this pattern up myself, just fiddling around with different stitches.
