Gettin’ Knitty

Hpim0107One of my favorite stress-relievers is to start something new, something fresh to take my mind off of things. This week, I’m picking up knitting, again. I’ve been taught the basic stitches, so many times from my very patient mother, but only recently have I felt comfortable enough to start a true project. So, here it is, the first few rows of my funky purple scarf! My plan is to catch up to my mom’s amazingly advanced level so that one day, when I have children, I can knit them gorgeous sweaters, hats and booties, just like my mom did for me. How about you? What are some of your favorite stress-relievers? Or, if you’re a knitter too…send us some pics of your projects!

    No, I am not a knitter, but wish I were. When I was in school, I tried getting my cousin to teach me and she was much too impatient (and I consider myself a fast learner). She’d say, “Do this, and this, and this.” You couldn’t even see what she was doing. I do like to cross stitch and do other crafty things, but having children has put that on hold for a while. I just can’t seem to find the time. I hope you enjoy making the scarf and other pretty things.

    Karen – Thanks for stopping by our blog! My cousin is a new mom to twin girls and she’s missing her little craft projects. It’s tough to find time, but even if you get to them once every six months, its so good to have that creative outlet!

    I taught myself to knit while expecting my twin boys – in Guam, on screwdrivers, from a book. Talk about stressful, NOT a stress-reliever. LOL But, I’m happy to say I’m far advanced from that point now and knit all the time for my charity (*after* the kids go to bed, of course). Did you finish the scarf?
