rarely can just sit still. If I just sit and watch a movie, I fall asleep. So, either I am on my computer during a movie, or knitting. And, I love to knit. I go to a knitting group twice a month, called “Chicks with Sticks”. I’ve learned a lot from the ladies in the group, though I’ve not tried real hard things yet, because at this point, I really do not want to think while I am knitting. I just want to keep busy!
I’ve made lots of scarves and dish cloths which I can give as a handmade gift and are very quick and easy to make. Some of the ladies in the group have made beautiful wool socks and a special friend has given me some socks she made for me. I love them. I am just not too certain of making them yet! The heels look complicated!
I have seriously thought of getting a knitting kit that would teach me some new things when I have some quiet time to really concentrate on it. I’d love to make some hats or socks. I have another friend who makes adorable hats for children. These too would make such unique, personalized gifts! Wool and the Gang is a specialized store with Ready-to-Knit Kits and handmade, ready-to-wear pieces, made in the mountainous regions of Peru. Either is tempting for me to buy!
