Hi Everyone,

I know that I haven't posted in a while. Been crazy busy! I just wanted to tell you all about my newest endeavor. I have taught myself to knit. It is something I always wanted to learn how to do, but never found the time to teach myself. Recently, a wonderful lady that I watch regularly on You Tube, posted some videos on knitting. She has been a total inspiration for me in learning how to knit. Her name is Bev, a.k.a. TheMrsVolfie, and can be found here. I was so inspired by her videos, that I went out and bought me some DPN's (double pointed needles), found a pattern on the internet, and taught myself to knit. Of course, I couldn't just start out with an easy pattern and make a plain ol' scarf or something like that. NO! I had to start out working on 4 needles and knitting socks for Hubby!!! LOL!! Well, I just about have the pair finished. I will post some photos of them. I have also began another knitting adventure making some leg warmers and fingerless gloves for my granddaughter who just started ice skating lessons. I have a leg warmer started and will finish those as time permits in the next week or so. I will show you a picture of what I have done so far and will post new photos when they are finished.

The only thing I can say is that you are never to old to learn something new and if there is something you always wanted to learn how to do, just do it! You might even surprise yourself!!

Pin It!
