I Dream in Roving...



It's official - I am hopelessly addicted. I've started scouring the Net for a local store and have joined a knitting group. It's so hard to remember what it was like starting from ground zero when I first started scrapbooking. That was over 10 years ago. I feel like I could scrapbook in my sleep. So, whenever I screw up on a knitting project, I get frustrated with myself. It's also a lot of math. I guess scrapbooking always was, too. I just never realized it.

How do I know I converted? My Amy Butler K&Company tote now houses my needles and yarn... I can't wait for CHA to see the yarns and knitting booths... I've bought six knitting books in the past month... I now have a "yarn basket"...

See the pattern?

Ginger do you remember when we went to Cornerstone and I knit when all of you scrapped? (Its me, Jana's sister).

Lets do it again sometime, I'd love to have a knitting buddy!

Have you learned to needle felt yet? You'd love that too..

knitting is also a passion of mine. I go in "fits and starts" but my 6 grandies have tons of knitted sweaters! That yarn is sure nice colours. Good luck to you if you do get to the point of making something....
I love to scrap too, but sometimes a creative mind just has to have another diversion.
