My New Year's resolution was to learn a new old timey skill a month. This month I was determined after many years of trying, that this time I WAS going to learn to knit. These are pictures of my first completed project. I used size 50 needles which are essentially vampire slaying needles, and Lion Brand's Thick and Quick Yarn. This took me about two hours to do the actual knitting and the rest of the day for FarmerGeek to get home and show me how to bind off.

(Doesn't he have such pretty hands?)

Anyways, on to February's skill!

Sorry, I commented but put it on the previous post. Blond moment...happens quite a bit. Usually it's when I am frozen to death from trying water chickens in -40 degree temps!
ps. didn't we get lucky with the weather today?
