On Nnenna’s Needles #22

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend!  The holiday decorations reminded me a bit of this knitting project that I did last year:

You all know how much I love stars, right? :D Well, I wanted a little something to spice up my dorm room, so I charted out the design in the second picture.  Then, when I was knitting, all the shaded boxes in my chart were done in a different color and voilà, my picture pops out!  The cool thing is that you could sketch (and then knit) almost anything you want to.  I could have even gotten all fancy and used multiple colors if I wanted to!  I’m thinking next time I’ll try it on an even bigger scale!

P.S. Remember how I keep hinting at some changes around here?? T- approx one week until the reveal! ;)

    This is so cool, I find knitting so daunting and complicated. I just couldnt figure it out even though I can crochet. So seeing this is pretty awesome. You should make a blanket!

    Thank you Eli!  That's so funny because I find crochet really difficult and nowhere near as easy as knitting! haha :)  Funny you should mention a blanket because that's what I'm working on right now! =)
