Any-hoo, Did some searching and I found this: R2D2 beanie from Carrissa Knits. Totally blown away, since I've only been knitting for around a year. Decided to suck it up, and give it a try. I've only worked with circular needles once before, and had just tackled the task of trying to use double pointed needles. Even though I was so scared this would come out looking crap, I embraced the fact that I would have to push myself to get this done.
I practiced doing duplicate stitch on some beanies I made for family members, since that was another thing the pattern asked.
Scary as it was, I finished it. Ended up making most if through a Star Wars marathon. Really, 75% of it was made watching Return of the Jedi because the boys liked it, and didn't mind that it was on. :D
Out of the few friends I have that knit/crochet, Leslie is one of two people that have inspired me to push my craft to a place I never imagined I would be. I mean, I learned how to knit/crochet from a book less than 3 years ago for heaven's sake. LOL Totally blows my mind every time I think about it.
Big HUGE Thank You's to Jessica and Leslie
....For constantly pushing me to be a better artist.
Love you bunches♥
