I have been motivated to start knitting again, thanks to a few of my online friends who knit. I have done several scarfs, some kitchen dishrags, a few scrunchies, and a few knitted purses. Other than that I haven't really advanced to anything harder. My online friend Schnauzermom knitted such a pretty sweater recently, and that is one thing I have wanted to knit the most. I decided that even though I am still a novice knitter, I was going to give it a try. When Jeff's great aunt passed away, the family gave me all of her knitting stuff. There was TONS of stuff. I feel very blessed to have it. She had several books, so I looked through them to see if I could find the sweater I wanted to make. I wanted something that was a solid color to try at first, since I am so new at this. I loved looking through the old books. I could tell
that most of them were from the 70's because of the styles
and hair. It made me a little nostalgic. I did find a sweater style I really
I am making. I am making it in a woodsy green color. I just started, so hopefully I will progress well. Evie saw me knitting, and saw my 3 rows that I had done, and said, "Mommy, that doesn't look at all like a sweater." I had to laugh :).
