Well it's been a crazy week as usual and I have managed to get one Shrug knitted for my little Art Doll. I have been wanting to learn this skill for many years, and have tried it numerous times over the years, but never managed to grasp the whole knit and purl and all the other things you have to do. Not to mention, how to hold those darn sticks in your hands while controlling the tension on the yarn. LOL
I must say, this is a wonderful art form to learn and I'm having a blast at it! Here are some pics of my little Art Doll with her new knitted Shrug on. I think it came out pretty good for a first try at this.
Had to get a Knitting Basket and stuff with all kinds of new yarns, needles, accessories, etc. It's ready to take with me where ever I go! The other thing is, make sure you get a knitting needle carrier too. I also took a sharpie and put the numbers of each knitting needle on the top. This way you don't have to fumble with your knitting gauge and try and figure out the metric system. LOL
Okay, I have been waiting to get this DVD for some time now, and it finally came. If you are a Michael Jackson fan and even if you are not, this is a great DVD. After watching it, I threw in my Michael Jackson CDs and started dancing around in the Studio. I must warn you though, you will watch it over and over again...that's how good it is. I cried at the end...what an amazing artist he was.
