Show and Tell: Kickin' It Old Skool Day #10


Today is Day 10 the Kickin' It Old Skool Blog-a-thon we are doing a show and tell!

I'm showing my current knitting project with is the Mosey legwarmers that I'm making for my sister Jamie. I know the knitting in the round on many needles can freak people out, so I hope I didn't do that; but I so prefer it to sewing up seams at the end of the project. Even though I've made them twice before, I have to transcribe the pattern into Shannon shorthand as my knitting patterns along with so many other things are currently in storage. Thank goodness it's online!

This December Jamie and I are bringing the fun back to blogging with old skool prompts every day! Join us here to get in on the fun of the Kickin' It Old Skool Blog-a-thon!

That really cool. Wish I could knit like that, I can only use two and I'm still so new I still drop a stitch.

Steph Snider said...

Oh goodness it has been forever since I knitted. Thanks for sharing! Good luck with it :-)

Kristina said...

I've never knitted before, but I have crocheted. That looks like a lot of work. Good luck with it!

Sarah Broadfoot said...

I love that you make so many things for Jamie. You are such a generous sister. (I totally dig the fingerless gloves you made for her.)

Lynn said...

Multiple needles looks so neat. I'm such a klutz that I would be afraid I would lose one somewhere along the line. Looks interesting, but should you be sharing this so close to Christmas?

John said...

I've no idea how to knit, although I do know a few "knitters". Very cool - and I'm sure Jamie will be very happy!

Tery Lynne said...

I would really love to learn how to knit. Awesome!

Sherry Smyth said...

This is so cool Shannon...and it looks like (the shape with the needles) those "machines" we had as kids -- a square with pegs where you wove the wool up and down to create...Jamie is going to look "hot" in those leg warmers! xo

Cool, Shannon! I have knit socks on 5 needles, but leg warmers feel ambitious! Happy knitting!

Suzie Ridler said...

Shannon, you boggle my mind! Holy cow, those are "real deal" leg warmers. That's awesome, thanks for showing and telling.

Deborah Weber said...

How fun. When I first say the photo I thought you were knitting some kind of Ojo de Dios (Eye of God) object. ;-) I have to say I'm utterly impressed with the 4 needle action you've got going. I can barely (and I mean barely!) manage two. Four seems incomprehensible. Lucky Jamie.

Cool leg warmers! I love to freak people out with double points. Its look way more complicated than it really is, but they don't have to know that!

4 needles! That's wackadoodle! Knitting is such a cool skill. I'd love to learn how.

Heather Luxion said...

Sisters who knit leg warmers are extra awesome! (One of my sisters is currently knitting some for me, too! Ha!) Those look like they're going to be super warm!!

Dale Anne Potter said...

Very Cool & they will be so warm!

S.M. Hutchins said...

That looks really cool and really complex. LOL! I bet Jamie will love those finished legwarmers.

Beverley Baird said...

Wow - so cool! I've never tried this - I crochet.

Kelly said...

Can I just say--I'm glad you shared the look on your face! You look so excited and happy and proud! Way to go! :)

Helen said...

So cool! I love the idea of legwarmers, and the ones you're making are beautiful. Someone will be very happy with them, I am sure!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I am so excited about the leg warmers, Shannon! And truly amazed and impressed by your ability to work with all those needles!

Janet Miles said...

So neat! I have never been able to get the hang of knitting, though I can crochet a bit. That is amazing. I am sure I would get all tangled up in myself!
