Happy Knitting and Stamping

Who said you can't combined the love of all your hobbies? I maybe a little crazy because I've signed up for yet another addictive hobby which enables me to hoard yet another wonderful stash. So now my stash of rubber stamps are expanding to wonderful colorful yarns. Although I'm committed to only purchasing yarns I intended to really! I know I said that about stamping, but I think I only have a couple of stamps which have never seen ink. No really why don't you believe me?

Anywho, back to why I'm here...this post is to celebrate my knitting adventures. As of today, I have been knitting for 5wks and I'm officially hooked! Right now I have two projects in process a Knitting Needle Bag for me and my 1st pair of socks. The bag is completed just need to get it lined and seemed up. I'm super proud of this project because I read the pattern all by myself. Using Lambs Pride Bulky for this project I love the color and the feel of this yarn knitting with it was great would sometimes split but all in all a great yarn and a good price.

Now to continue celebrating I mass produced some cards with Ellen Hutson knitting stamps. As you can see I kept the design very simple in order to mass produce. Envelopes coordinate with the cards and I love how the turned out. I had fun coming up with color combos for the balls of yarn. I'm sure I could find a yarn to coordinate with this...maybe jitterbug? My hopes for these cards are to sell them to help in my fund raising efforts with Team in Training (another post to follow about this). So what do you think? Next post will talk about my Sock project and then another one to talk about my new running adventures. Thanks for taking some time today to celebrate with me.

Happy Knitting & Stamping!

Love the cards! Go TNT!!!!! I have a whole collection of stamps. I would love to create some cards as a fundraiser - how do you go about finding info on copyrighted images and such?
