I have officially joined the blogging world!
I hope to share many of the creative projects that I am working on and will add tips when I can. I love being creative. My first choice for fullfilling that creative need is knitting, closely followed by polymer clay.
I have been knitting since I was a child but really didn't start knitting on a regular basis until I was in my early 20s and wanted to make nice Christmas and birthday gifts for my family and friends. When I couldn't find buttons that I like to match my handknits, I began to make buttons from polymer clay. A few years ago I really got excited about clay and learned all that I could and try as many techniques. I love making jewelry and buttons especially. But I came back to knitting because it is so portable. I usually have at least two or three knitting projects in the car at any one time so that I can knit whenever I have a couple of minutes - soccer practice and games etc.
At the moment I am working on a sweater called Shalom Cardigan. This has been a very popular pattern on Ravelry but I didn't get sucked in until recently while looking at some of the projects that others have done with the pattern. I decided to do the yoke with Knit Picks new yarn Chroma and the body with the brown solid Chroma yarn and I also decided to add 3/4 length sleeves.
