    Default I started knitting again!

    I fooled around with ruffled scarves last winter. In May I decided to tackle something a little more difficult. I finished on Monday! -image-jpg

    Very cool. My wife is learning how to knit and made me a nice throw blanket.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    That is a lot more difficult than scarves. It is beautiful!

    I learned when I was very, very young. You can take the class and teach her what you learn. She'll pick it up fast!

    My mom taught me how to knit when I was about 12. She also tried to teach me how to crochet at about that same time. I picked up knitting fine, but couldn't even crochet a straight chain. She tried again several times during my teens and I still just couldn't "get it". Then when I was about 25 I was trying to knit an afghan for a friend for a wedding gift. At that time in my life I was a single mother to a 2 year old and had a full time job working 12 hour swing shifts. It was taking me so long to knit the afghan that it was going to be a 20th anniversary gift before I got it done. So I asked mom to try to teach me to crochet again. I must have been ready to learn finally because by that evening I was making an afghan and had it completed in about a week.
    I haven't tried to knit anything since. But have made a lot of crochet afghans and doilies. At any rate, I can really appreciate all the time and work you put into that. It's beautiful!

    Thanks everyone! Your story is similar to mine, @LariP. I have never been able to crochet. Maybe I should try again!

    Pretty! Love the color!

    Having a baby soon makes me really wish I knew how to knit stuff...I'll learn someday!

    Very nice, I can't sew a button on, much less knit or crochet. Love the color.
