I hope everyone had great Easter,I did.The kids got all dress up and we went to church.My kids wasn't in this years Easter program,because I have been so busy at home didn't have time to take them to practice.

You probable saying busy doing what.Well my dh decided he wanted to gut out our bathroom in our bedroom and redo it!!ME HAPPY ABOUT THAT!!
That means all new things for my bathroom.And I tell you my bathroom was pretty sad looking.So I have dust and dirt flying around my house because of all the work he is doing.

Well I am not able to sew anything until the bathroom is done.So I have been practicing on my knitting.Yes I have my first knitting project done.

Pattern: First Knits
Yarn: caron simply soft(yarn pattern calls for rowan wool cotton)
Needles: US 6/tapestry needle
Conclusion: This is a great hat to make if you are a first time knitter.I learn how to thumb cast-on,decrease and bind off.The hat came out a little bigger than it looked.I think that is because I didn't use the yarn the pattern called for and the yarn I used was to soft.I did have some trouble sometime trying to keep my stitches from sliding off my needle.So I had to take it slow so that would happen.I still love my hat,but I will be giving it to my teenager to wear,because it is a little to big for me.I really enjoyed knitting ,the next thing I want to learn is cables now I think that is going to be a lot harder.

Well that it for me!Happy crafting!!
