My New Passion “Knitting”

5 Apr

“Really, handknitting is a dreamy activity, built into many people’s thumbs and fingers by genes already there, itching to display their skills and achievement possibilities.”

–From Knitting Around

I started a new hobby!  Yes, I know, with what time?

Last year my mother-in-law got us for Christmas a beautiful knitted scarf.  I asked her how she did it and she started to teach me the basics of knitting.

A year later, I decided that if I was going to sit and watch TV I might as well be productive.  And started Knitting a Blanket.  I totally forgot what my mother- in-law showed me.  So, I got on you-tube and watched a few videos and said “how hard can this be?”   Let me say,  it’s been hard as you can tell from the picture on the left.

But, I’m not giving up.  This year I would like to make a few blankets for Christmas and need your help for an easy pattern and instructions how to knit.  If you can look at the picture and tell me what I’m doing wrong that would be awesome.  I only know how to do one stitch.

Thank you from the wannabe Knitter!
