I have taken up knitting this month. I love it! My first project was knitting a "java jacket." It is a simple thing that you put on a hot cup of coffee- we usually use cardboard jackets. Next I made two dishcloths, using cotton yarn. My third project, now in progress, is making a tea cozy. I will post a picture when it is finished. One thing I have noticed- it is nearly impossible to eat and knit at the same time. How did I get started? I signed up for a one-session class at Joann's Fabrics. The teacher turned out to be such an encouraging person. I have taken 2 of her classes and am signed up for a third. I just joined a knitting group made up of the most wonderful women, some of whom have been knitting for more than 50 years! This new adventure is a lot of fun, and I think I may be on my way to lots of enjoyable hours making things for myself, but also for family and friends! The next project: SOCKS!
