...And the world was never safe again... ~_^
I've just taught myself how to knit.
Never one to do things the easy way, I learned how to knit with double-pointed needles because I just want to make amigurumi and they're done in the round, so I figured why learn how to go flat first if I'll hardly ever do that? So I'm off to a round start. (For anyone out there who's wincing at that, that's also how I tackled crochet. ~_^)
I made an brown-orange ball. Then I crocheted him a little two-tone green hat, gave him some eyes and a mouth, and voila! It's a persimmon! I'm calling him Pete. I'll post a picture when I can find the camera.
He turned out pretty darn good, I think! At least his stitches are all the same size. I miss crochet's invisible decreases and double ring, though... :(
