I couldn't start my first knitting post without mentioning the "Hands of Love". The Hands of Love are a lovely group of ladies that meet to knit (or crochet) at my church. My mom decided to join it to learn how to knit. Then asked if I wanted to go. After many weeks of not going, I went and made puppet kittens, scarves and then stuffed kittens.... and then my creativity EXPLODED!
I made a bunch of animals... all which will be mentioned at some time or another in this blog. However, I dont have pictures of some of them, because I donated them before I knew I would go crazy with making knitted animals. So, kids at Peyton Manning Childrens Hospital have them. So far, I have donated a litter of knitted kittens, a lion, a bear, and a pig to the kids.
SO, I don't have any pictures of the kittens or the pig, but I have the lion and the bear. (note: the red bear is from a pattern... not my design)
So... these are only a couple of animals that I have done so far in my knitting. I couldn't have done it without those ladies introducing me to knitting. Check back to see more of my knitted creations!
