New Obsession!

If I would have known what yesterday morning would start, I might have stayed home! I am part of a mom's group at my church called Mom's for Mom's. We meet every other Tuesday morning for two hours. Yesterday was craft/hobby day. I attended a session on learning to knit and let's just say, a hobby was born! I even skipped my other session so I could practice more. It was frustrating to learn the two stitches at first, but I am happy to report that after a couple hours of practicing last night, I have both the knit stitch and purl stitch down. Now I wouldn't say I've perfected them, practice makes "perfect" right, but I really think I'm going to have fun with this! I promise I'll show you all my first finished product, imperfections and all. Just what I needed, one more activity to beckon me during this busy holiday season. I'm definitely going to have to put limits on this.

OK, now can you come teach me? I have been wanting so much to learn to knit, and I have tried with some online directions, but I can't seem to figure it out. Guess I'll just have to stick with crocheting for now.
I can't wait to see your finished project!

More power to you sister. Knitting needles have always frightened me. Kinda the way clowns do. ;)
