So one thing I left of about me from the Versatile Blogger post is that I knit! Yeah, yeah, if you've got any granny jokes for me, get them out of your system. Because I'm a pretty badass knitter.
I've been knitting since my sophomore year in high school. Mostly, I just wanted to make one of the scarfs from the Harry Potter movies. Well, I did that and then some. I've made so many cool things, but here are a few of my all-time favorites:
I just made this blanket during Christmas break. I have some strange obsession of making blankets, even though they take forever. I don't know how many TV series I finished watching while knitting this: probably all of The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Pretty Little Liars.
This hat was for a challenge where you had to make an intricate project over the duration of the 2009 Winter Olympics. You cast on during the opening ceremonies and are supposed to be finished during the closing ones. I was shocked that I finished this hat in time, because it was my first time working with so many different colors. I even made a second one before the Olympics were over.
What I love about knitting is that I can look at a project I finished and it brings back memories of where I was at the time. Where I was, who I was, what I was doing...my knitted projects are like photographs to me. Sadly, I don't have any time to knit in college. I've been leaving my knitting at home lately because it's so tempting to say "I'll just finish this row and then do my homework." In case you can't guess, the homework never gets done when the knitting's around.
Stay tuned, I have so many more projects to show all of you. Do any of you knit or do arts and crafts?
