Last year I completely missed this wonderful annual blog event. This year I found out about it happening just yesterday and wanted to take part. Better late than never. Today is actually Day 3 of the event; I'm joining in late and hence am putting up my posts for the first two days.
My day1 entry for the Knitting And Crochet Blog Week IV
Day 1 was on April 22nd and participants were asked to choose a house based on the description given and which best describes their approach to crafting.
I chose the House of Monkey
The House of Monkey: Intelligent and with a fun loving side, Monkeys like to be challenged with every project presenting them with something new and interesting.Read about the rest of the houses here
Here's why I think I identify with this house:
My knitting and crochet journey began because I wanted to make this ruffled shawl. I've always found that I make things because I truly love its design and its something I will actually wear. I then go about learning whatever I need to learn to complete that project. From the beginning, I kept working on various crochet projects from bags to scarves to slippers savouring the process of learning. Knitting happened almost parallely since I wanted to make more garments and I love the look of knits. These days I mostly knit and hardly crochet.
After gaining confidence with some scarves and hats I dived straight into making this pleated top - my first piece of knitted clothing which I'm very proud of. I've worked with quite a number of yarns : cotton, silk, alpaca, acrylic and wool. The journey till now has taught me a lot and I'm enjoying every bit of it.
Eskimimi Makes. Looking forward to the rest of the week.
