Idle Hands II, Back in the Habit

I'm sure you've been losing sleep at night, waiting to hear how I've progressed in my crochet projects this winter. 

At last mention, I had just finished these beauties

And had just started on this creation:

Well, I'm happy to report that after a few more trips to the yarn store (it takes a lot of yarn to make a scarf!), I have finished my scarf! You may have noticed that I was making it progressively narrower with each row at first. I got that figured out eventually, with a couple of little tabs on one end of the scarf to remind me of my humble crochet beginnings.

And Check it out!!!

Look at that Craftsmanship:

And to fill my evenings after I finished that 5.5 foot labor of love, I set to the task of making another hat:

New hat, new tricks. This one used the full Double crochet stitch with two different stitches to make the rim around the bottom! 

It's amazing what you can do with a youtube tutorial.

And this is the beginnings of my Winter 2014 knitwear line:

There's talk about expanding into arm-knitting. The possibilities are really just endless.

To preserve my masculinity, I did enroll in a Boxerfit exercise class. I get to punch things, which is always fun.

The final wave of visitors is about to hit, so get ready for some more exciting updates in a couple of weeks!
