The Story

When I was a young girl, my mother taught me how to knit.

She taught me the knit and purl stitches and with that I made a ton of scarves for my dolls!  Whenever I was done a scarf, my mother would cast off for me as I didn’t quite grasp how to do it then.

Fast forward to 2014.

I have a group of girls I get together with on a monthly basis to scrapbook, and one of these girls, Shelley, on occasion, would bring knitting to do instead of scrapbooking.  Watching her knit made me realize that I wanted to re-learn.

So, in December 2014, Shelley came by my house. She showed me again the knit and purl stitches, how to change between the two, and showed me how to cast off.  This time, I understood perfectly!

In my 1st year I completed 29 hats, 11 pairs of fingerless gloves, 9 scarves, 6 blankets, , 2 pairs of socks, and 1 pair of slippers!  I think it’s safe to say I’m a little addicted!! LOL!

I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and I can’t wait to share with you all my new creations!
