Knit One, Purl One...

When I started this blog I had planned to include some post about my other hobby, knitting. I never seemed to get around to it. So, I've decided to include some pics of my knitting projects every now and then.

I learned to knit when I was about 12...a long time ago!! I never really learned to do anything but knit and purl. It really didn't interest me at the time. About five years ago my sister was visiting from Florida and she had learned to knit. That got me interested again and I've found that I really enjoy it. I've knit mostly shawls, wraps, scarves and cowls. I haven't tried socks or sweaters, but they're on my knitting bucket list. Here's one of the shawls that I knitted a few years ago for my friend Maggie's 6oth birthday. I recently used this pattern and the same yarn to knit a shawl for my BFF's mom who celebrated her 84th birthday.

Here is a another shawl I knitted for my friend Jan. It's a basket weave stitch.
I've done much more knitting than stamping this summer so I'll include some knitting posts every now and then. But I definitely plan to get back to stamping and paper crafting projects soon.
