I have found a new love. Though I am just beginning to teach myself to knit, I find myself drawn to it. The beautiful colors, the texture of the wool in my hands, watching it turn into something useful stitch by stitch. I love the rhythm of it, and how I can do it anywhere, anytime, and still be conscious to the outside world. Be able to watch the girls play, have a conversation, humor them and their latest adventures.
So far, I have taught myself to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. Pretty basic, I know. But with this, I have created a fluffy, cozy scarf for myself, a wool ball for the baby, dish cloths, and I am currently working on a cozy for my iPad mini. But soon, I will teach myself to knit in the round because what I really want to make is longies for Kaybug. The upcycled sweater longies will do for now, until mama can make them herself.
