You saw the February post about knitting...
I knit to keep my hands busy when I am done quilting.
I knit to let my mind wander.
The yarns, the colors, the textures take my creative mind
in directions my fabrics don't always take me.
I get to make a lot of great gifts for friends.
I knit so that my quilting brain can 'recharge'.
But I'm really mind quilting!
I don't knit like Lisa or Kenna, tho.
I knit big chunky simple things.
h o w e v e r
I am always willing to learn new things.
I am always willing to put in the time and effort to try something different.
So when I saw this Martingale & Company book
I thot - I'd like to try THAT!!!
I had to go to the local cottage knit shop and get size - sigh - 2 needles
and then I had to select but just ONE skein of sock yarn.
I had no idea sock yarn was designed to make patterns!
Overall, stripe, flame, fair isle, did I say stripe?
Well, I was sold.
So, I got set up and opened the book.
This book really has the best instructions ever. And great pictures.
I think I can DO this, if I can ever get past the mental block against the size - sigh - 2 needles...
