The videos are WAY cool.
I first learned to knit more than 20 years ago from my mother- and sister-in-laws. Mostly Christmas stockings and mittens.
Watching the news after Hurricane Katrina I got cranky. And decided I should knit a blanket for someone who’d lost theirs. I found a pattern on-line, drove over to Michael’s to get some yarn and anothhr needle and on October 10 I finished my first ever baby blanket.
In the process, I don’t know what got into me. I found kntting the blanket to be far more relaxing than the stockings I’d made over the years. I travel for work a lot (I’m a consultant about natural gas) and found knitting is a way better way to relax on an airplane. So since (i.e., in the LAST MONTH), I’ve made two fun fur scarves, a stocking for my new sister-in-law and a hat for my six-year-old friend Helen. I’m working on the matching scarf now. And I found knittinghelp.com looking for info. I am very glad to have found such a resource.
Here is me at the SCCA Solo II National Championships in September where I won my 8th National Championship and here also is the finished blanket, which is about to go off to Project Linus.
Thank you Amy and all who answer our questions.
