knit/purl


before we went on vacation,
I got to take a knitting class at our local Michael's.
I'd been wanting to learn how to knit for quite a while,
but I could never figure it out with just books/online stuff.
I need someone to show me how to do something.

the lady who taught the class, Ann, was seriously the sweetest,
and so very helpful. the class was for a washcloth,
but she taught me some other tricks & such along with it.


since then, I've been knitting away!
4 different washcloths, the beginning of a scarf for a niece,
the start of an infinity cowl.
so glad I was able to get started in this
and add yet another hobby to my collection. ;)

have you picked up a new hobby recently?
what do you fill your spare moments with?
let's chat!

i have been wanting to learn to knit and crochet for a long time, I learned to crochet a bit when i was a kid but I forget how. I am looking for a local class to attend. I want to make a few cowls for the fall and winter.

i so want to learn to knit and have tried so many times but i get to stressed out that everything gets wider and wider as i go along. so i just stick to crocheting.

lol knitting is an addictive hobby as you get something quite quickly. I myself am learning how to crochet as I mastered knitting a while ago. Keep up the good work.
