Strider is so proud

Strider loves being my model and is very proud of his Mom – can’t you tell??!!

I finished my first strawberry hat which taught me how to carry colors (for the seeds) and follow a pattern (for the leaf on top!)

I bought the book “Knitted Toys” on Friday and am looking forward to reading it and learning how to do some of the patterns.

Clearly knitting is my new obsession 🙂

Also I joined Ravelry which is a great online community for knitters. I haven’t totally learned all the ins and outs of the site since I’m still getting started but if you are on look up ahvt227 and become my friend 🙂
