A work in progress.
I stink at math, but I’m pretty creative. One of my more recent loves is knitting. I was always intrigued by knitting, so about seven years ago a co-worker taught me and R the very basics of knitting, and we each made a felted bag. Then life (and cancer) took over and knitting was put on the back burner. About two years ago I picked it back up and haven’t looked back! I’m still a beginner teaching myself how to knit but am really enjoying the new challenges. I knit downstairs. I knit on the porch swing. I knit in the car. I knit at doctors’ offices.
Finally, I knitted something that slightly resembles an article of clothing (other than the scarves, socks, and shawls I’ve knitted). I’m pretty proud of it, so I thought I would show it off. I posted it on the fiber lovers’ website of choice, Ravelry.
The next best thing is that I met another friend (B) who loves to knit, and we started a knitting group! We combined it with another new knitting group and are now holding two night sessions and one day session per month. The women are crazy-fun. Seriously, CRAZY fun. I can’t get any knitting accomplished because I’m always laughing. Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold. I’m really digging my new silver friends, the Ozarks Twisted Stitchers. We have a couple of charities we are now knitting for, one being near and dear to my heart (and chest): Knit-A-Tit (more on that later!).
I knit, therefore I am.
