My very first attempt... not too bad for a newbie!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Ours was fun filled and action packed because my folks were in town visiting so that meant lots and lots of activity. However, over the weekend I also taught myself how to knit! Yeah...it's been on my wish list of things to learn for a very long time and I finally sat down and figured it out this weekend. Needless to say, my little shadow was right at my side as always and completely fascinated with knitting and wanted to learn too. Well, the funny part about this is Santa told me that he got Abby this adorable knitting basket filled with yards and needles for one of her Christmas presents so I thought it would be a good idea for me to learn so that when the time came I could teach Abby how to do it too. But, she wanted to get started right away. So, we went out and she picked out her yarn and needles and as you can see she doing pretty darn awesome for a first try, and she is loving it! First thing this morning she came down stairs and wanted to start knitting right away and she's been busy for hours. Now, little Henry wants to learn how to knit too, but we are going to start him off with finger knitting and see how he does with that. I can see how this is going to be completely addicting and why so many people have taken up knitting and it's becoming very popular. I have to say that I'm just tickled to see so many things that used to be the norm for women making a huge comeback and people learning to love so many of the domestic arts all over again. Now, if someone could just come up with a clever way to make house cleaning an absolute blast!
