Finished Knits

I figured I needed a place to show off display all my finished knits. Looking at them en masse, though, I now realize how SMALL all my knitted items are, which is sad seeing as how it usually takes me a few MONTHS to finish them! (Reason #38 to try and stick to the one-project-at-a-time philosophy).

Not included here are all the knits I knit up without photographing…. The first “sock” I knitted (which was really just a long ribbed tube), the hats I made for my friend Amy when I was just learning to knit, and of course, all those scarves….

Thanks for looking!

    Looking at all this stuff, reminds me of myself. Could not leave the needles just sitting there without picking them up and putting them to work. I am so proud of you since some of the items are not just beginners knitting. You are so smart. Gramma

    Hello – I saw your handy work on the net and am so impressed with your knitting skill. I have only been knitting for a short time and hope to be as good as you some day. I have been searching for a pattern for fingerless gloves and really like the ones you knitted. I looked on the internet for Ann Budd’s book but she’s published quite a few. Could you please provide a little more info. for me so I can try to locate it or could you possibly email me a scanned copy of the pattern? Thanks so much for being such an inspiration for me.
    Sincerely, Elizabeth Aragon
