More yarn projects…

16 Nov

So I’ve been learning to knit. Bless my mother-in-law’s heart, I just can’t remember what she teaches me! So I do what any good librarian would do, I find a knitting book.

Since I’m still fairly new to knitting, I find it slow and I also have to concentrate quite a bit while I do it. I decided that maybe I should break out the crochet hooks again and give my iPad a break from my mindless activities while watching tv.

I went through my box of yarn and found a few incomplete projects. Before I start anything new, I will have to finish what I’ve started.

    I think we are connected or something. After I finish this novel writing business, my next project is more knitting. I have several works in progress to get finished up.

      Thanks for the website. I’ve bookmarked so I can look through it at my leisure. I’m excited at what this new skill can bring.
