Fiber Arts Friday - Remembering

I was going through my brain the other day and found my very first Fiber Arts Friday post.

I had been reading FAF for a while and wanted to participate but never quite had it all together until last summer.  Now, ten months later, it's a regular post that I plan for each week.

I think blogging about my projects has helped me become a better knitter and spinner.  Certainly FAF and Twitter have helped me build relationships with other knitters and spinners who have provided guidance, support and challenges which have improved my skills.

I did give my sister's husband and son the matching hats for Christmas and I finally gave the initial scarf and hat to my sister for her birthday last month.

They gave us some very exciting news that day, which means I will be attempting these very soon.  :-)

I love you guys.

Enjoy the rest of Fiber Arts Friday over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.

Hooray for the baby news! I agree with you that posting about projects and blogging once a week about them does help keep you going. I look forward to what I can post each week even if it's my only post of the week.

Thank you for participating in Fiber Arts Friday.

Those duck slippers are adorable. It's so exciting waiting for little people to arrive. Happy FAF!

Knowing my Fiber Arts Friday Post is coming up often gives me the push to pick up a hook or my sticks!

Thank you all. We're all very excited about the little one.

@DutchHollow - I hadn't really thought about baby knits beyond the socks, but you're right. There will be a lot of fun projects over the next few years.

Really? Duck socks? The baby doesn't look very excited about having duck feet. I was thinking more along the lines of cozy alpaca booties. However, I can't wait to try out your projects on the little one.
