Yarn Arts FTW!

June 9 - Reverb Broads
What skill have you learned in the past year that you are proud of?

I've learned to knit! 

I've known how to crochet since high school, but until just recently had never put the effort into truly learning to knit.  And for the record, I had a pretty awesome teacher, Jenni from The Twisted Loop Yarn Shop, the yarn shop at our local public library. Yep, that's right, there's a yarn store at the library. So, come visit.  I'll take you to the yarn store to meet Jenni.

In progress

Project 2 - The hat from the Faire Isle Class

So now I have another fun and engaging hobby. And another way to make homemade gifts for people. And a new friend woo hoo


  1. Your hats are great! I'm so impressed--I know how to knit but I can only knit in a line so I'm really good at scarves and blankets. What you can do is far beyond my talent.

    1. Thanks. Actually, hats are pretty easy. Usually they're made in the round so you don't have to worry about turning. The only tricky part is at the end using the double pointed needles, but even then it usually works well.
