Look Mom! I did it.

My daughter brought home this book from the school library.....

Thought I would check it out..... and was surprised to see knitting included in a children's craft book. I have always been kind of intimidated by knitting.... always thought it was hard....well, if it is in a kid's craft book... it couldn't be all that hard? Could it??

So I headed out to my closest thrift store... picked up a couple of needles (25cents) and a ball of wool (50cents) and look!

I did it! It is really not that hard and its kind of fun! I admit I am not making sweaters or socks or anything like that but if you are thinking knitting is a hands off project because its too hard.... its not! I promise! Try it!

Have a happy weekend!

This would be just my speed. I'm afraid I have never knitted before, although my daughter wants to learn. I'm embarrased to say that I bought a brand new sewing machine over a year ago, and I have not even used it yet. I'm sooooo bad.

That's awesome. I've always wanted to try it to but, I've (like you) always thought it was too hard.
Maybe I'll give it a go.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Wow, that looks great!

I decided to teach myself to knit about 2 1/2 years ago. I'm still working on the same scarf that I started way back then! LOL
