Now I want to knit even more; and it’s way too much of course…

So here we are, a simple scarf. I have again learnt how to knit on the very last day of 2007 (who is going to remember what you learnt from 15 years ago?) and this is what came out of it:

This picture is taken a few days ago, now it’s about 5 times longer, but I’m too lazy to take another picture, horrible, aren’t I?

The next immediate thing I want to do is a cozy for my new Ipod nano. I see myself getting paranoid about it all the time, because I fear it might get scratches, so a small project like that will hopefully provide me with satisfactory feeling very fast <3 At the same time, I am planning on doing a complicated pattern for the back of the cozy to improve my mad skillz. Also, in order to do the round hole for the navigation, I will have to learn how to add and ‘delete’ rows.

A sketch of what I have in mind for it.

That’s not all obviously… just like a typical electrical engineer (they are famous for always wanting too much too perfectly within a too small time frame), this would also be very nice:
* A bag for notebook accessories. It’s really annoying to have the stuff loose in my messenger bag. Idea by Pochi.
* A pair of wristwarmers. Knitty surely is the best site for this evarrr. All in all, it was the site that stirred up my interest for knitting. These wristwarmers are supposed to introduce me into how to knit cables.
* A girlish purse like this. Ah, I wanted it for quite awhile now, they are so handy after all. The only problematic thing will be to get two of those wooden rings.
* And finally I somehow want a white, knit beret before I leave Paris again, haha. But I wonder if I really would want to use this pattern, even though it is rather interesting and unusual. To be honest, what I want the most is to have my old hat back that I lost in Montparnasse T_T
* Addendum: Another skill-enhancing project would be to knit some lacey gosurori-ish headdresses… or a belt with rather interesting, ridiculous other ways of use.

PS. On a side note, my mother just told me that she prefers crocheting over knitting because it’s faster to do. Also, it’s supposed to be really versatile. If that is true, I might look at it as well, somehow I want to learn it too. I will be researching crocheting and maybe that is going to be my next post…
