Keeping My Hands Busy

I have been crafting a lot lately.  I quit smoking 3 weeks ago and keeping my hands busy is important.  My wonderful crafty friends and I have also started a monthly Stitch and Bitch. We had our first one 2 weeks ago and it went great.  I made a Sock Bunny.  I have made sock monkeys before and thought I would branch out to other animals. I got the book Socks Appeal by Brenna Maloney for Christmas so I used her pattern it came out really cute, see:

Sock Bunny!

I have also been knitting a lot too.  I just starting knitting in November and I taught myself so I am still pretty new at it.   I did just finish a cute pair of hand warmers in a ribbed knit and I really like them.

Now I am teaching myself to increase so I am working on the kerchief from the book Stitch and Bitch by Debbie Stoller which is a really good beginners knitting book if you are trying to learn.  I will post pictures of it soon.

So how do you keep you hands busy and what are you making?  Leave me a comment and let me know
