I started out as many knitters may have, I bought a crochet hook ( yes I said crochet hook! ), some yarn and a book that taught me to crochet. My first attempts were awkward and time consuming, not to mention the calls to my mother to help interpret the pattern!
Once I was able to crochet several items I learned that crocheting is great fun and very relaxing but I wanted more.
Another trip to my local craft store! This time I returned with knitting needles, more yarn and a book on learning how to knit.
Knitting was a bit more difficult than I had anticipated but it also seemed quite natural after having crocheted for a while. My first attempted project was of course something simple. I made a scarf … it has been a while so don’t ask what yarn or kind of scarf it was …. lol !!
I have been knitting now for a few years and always seem to find the calling to sit down and knit once fall comes around. I would really enjoy knitting year round but life often gets in the way. Learning new stitches and techniques are my favorite things to .. currently I am knitting a cable blanket, a prismatic scarf and a blanket for my daughter.
Starting and not completing projects is one of my dilemmas. I get excited about learning something new and once that excitement wears off I move on to the next thing.
Soooo…. I love to knit .. if you do too , let me know ! leave a comment ! share your story with me!
Thanks for reading !!
