What Kind of Knitting Do You Do?


This sounded kind of interesting and a way to evaluate the knitting I have done and might like to do.

WOW!! I guess I have done a lot of knitting in my time-I've been knitting since I was a little girl. And you know it never gets old. Our friend Mary M. was reading to us yesterday at Craft Center about the Zen of Knitting and the author had it right. We may knit for many different reasons but in the long run it soothes our souls. Plus we get nice things from the effort.

Hope Michele P. is having a great time at TNNA-I am missing her already!
