Hobbit Dress

There have been a number of patterns that got me into knitting.  Most of them much too complicated for me when I was a beginner.

Things like this beautiful pattern for a Hobbit Dress.  I got so excited when I saw it that I went out a bought special wool for it.  At the time the pattern was above my knitting level and it never got completed.  So I set my wool aside.

Jayne Cobb Hat #2

So I spent my morning slowly working towards a goal of mine.  I eventually want to start selling my knitting, probably  through Etsy.  Or at the very least creating my own patterns for things.

I decided it was time to upload photos from my camera.  This is actually a rather difficult task as I lost the cord for my camera, and my card-reader.  I discovered that my adapter for the memory stick fits into the port for a memory card on my computer (I have an oddly shaped memory stick. :P

This lead to me (finally) organizing my photos and uploading them.

I promptly got distracted from that and found something to knit. Or rather, complete.  All it needs is earflaps and a snazzy pom pom!

Meet Jayne Cobb Hat #2.

For those who are not nerd enough, Jayne Cobb is a reference to Firefly.  He is known as the Hero of Canton.  He basically pulled a robin hood robbed from the rich to give to the poor type of thing.  And because he's such a great guy, Mama Cobb knitted him a hat.

That is my first attempt at knitting it and I think it went quite well.  I had started a second one right away but got distracted from it.  So I decided to pick it back up and finish it for a friend.
