Learning Something New

So I decided to try something new:) Knitting! It started out a little shaky, but I think after my "ugly" ear warmer I am actually getting better. And......IT'S FUN! Instead of sitting around twisting my hair all day (I might add this is pretty much what I do every day all day) I can create something with my twirls.

The perfect thing to do at the Farm while the men are out on a hunt:

I do feel a little old for some strange reason (possibly because everyone keeps calling me Granny):

I am good at twirls....SEE:
Now if I just had a little more patience. The only problem with the craft, it takes forever to finish one single thing. I am going to try and stick with it. I can only get better and faster with more practice. Until next time.....

YAY! I love knitting! People may call you Granny, but I bet you'll be getting scarf requests every Christmas!!!

Good for you. I crochet a bit but I used the biggest needle possible. I can't believe you taught yourself. I am an avid reader so I would love those times down on the farm to catch up on my reading and relax! That sounds most fantastic.

Awesome! I would love to learn how to knit someday... I love me a nice warm knitted ear warmer!

I finally taught myself your way Nik, not with the looms. I do great the first 10 rows, the find a hole, freakout, rip it off and start again. Congrats on the patience!! Looks good ;)
