I have a not-so-secret new hobby. Or obsession. You can decide for yourself which it really is.
My husband’s aunt taught me the basics last year, but it wasn’t until the past month or so that I really got into it. I started knitting dishcloths. Upon dishcloths. I think I’ve made 7 total.
Last week, I started knitting baby hats, and I’m finishing up the second one.
I’m officially a member on Ravelry, a knitting site for knitters and crocheters, too. I have tons of patterns that I’m anxious to try out! Mostly it’s more dishcloths along with a lace baby hat, a lace baby blanket, and a sweet baby cardigan. Wonder who those last 3 are for?
I’m really excited about learning how to knit! The more that I learn and the better I get, the more that I look forward to the five minutes or so that Abby gives me to work on projects. The best part is that even when I’m working on a simple design, I’m being productive. Not to mention the fact that when I say I’m knitting, it sounds ridiculously domestic. Even if the house is a wreck.
