I'm ready, I'm ready

I received my horse pattern yesterday! (I found and bought a pattern of a horse here: Hedgehog Lane) I am excited. I gave myself a day off of knitting last night. After making my niffler my figures were screaming for a break.

I really want to do the unsensible thing and start my centaur without knowing how to do the pattern. I am going to try to make the horse and then carry on. I guess I will make a unicorn first. THEN my centaur. I am going to make a pegusas also.

I emailed someone on ravelry about a week or so ago about her gryffin. It is fantastic, I want to make one so I asked her about her pattern. She doesn't really have a pattern, she is a freeform crocheter, but she is going to let me have here notes. I hope I can translate them into something knitted. I guess I need to learn to crochet.

I am pretty happy my weekend starts at 2pm. This week has drug on.

Often knit and crochet are pretty interchangeable. I've only been knitting for one year, so there were many times that I adapted knitted patterns to crochet. Typically, a single crochet (sc) can be done as a single stitch in knit, though gague plays a huge factor. Just play around with it a bit. :) You're a clever witch, I'm sure you'll figure something out! :) (Love your creations, by the way!)
