Why not knit????

Why do we love to knit????? The question is more why NOT knit! I have found joy and a wonderful way to be creative. My grandmother, mother,cousin, friends and so many others share this wonderful art. It is amazing the bond that can form with knitters. Sharing patterns, techniques, yarns, and fellowship! How cool is that!




How one resist running their fingers though textures such as alpaca, cashmere, bamboo, silk, merino wool, and so much more! The colors that abound these yarns are a dizzying wonder to behold.
The simple idea of turning a fiber into something like a sweater, hat, mittens, purse, and hundreds of other items is amazing to me. You can just let your imagination soar. I also love the idea that you can ALWAYS keep learning something new. You learn from mistakes, you learn by trying something new or taking a class on a new technique.



Why am I sitting here on the computer??? It's knittin' time!
