I’ve been teaching myself a new skill, ya know, because I have SO much extra time. Ha-ha. Actually, I have always loved beautiful yarns and the look of knitting. So I bought a beginners knitting video and started learning this beautiful art. The cute thing is that three of my children have fallen in love with knitting also. The video that I got (at Amazon - here) has been a wonderful help to me and has also been a great help for the children.
Last night I jumped in with both feet (well, hands), and started a shawl.
I can’t even tell you how many times I cast on my yarn, knit a bit, messed up and then pulled it out to start over. Non-the-less, this morning, I started to get the hang of it. And I can tell you, I think I’m addicted to knitting.
And it’s all their fault.
I keeping thinking how fun it would be to learn to dye, spin and knit with my own yarn. And there is going to be an open house at the alpaca farm this Sunday. I can’t wait! The owner will be doing some fiber demonstrations! What fun!!!
