Knitting again

When I was around 6-7 years old, one of my favorite things to do was knit. I don't know why, but I loved it. I was pretty good at it. I could even do some of the fancy stitches and designs.

Then I completely stopped doing it for almost 20 years.

A friend recently was giving away her extra knitting needles and yarn, so I decided to take some and see if I could do it again. It was hard at first, but after a few minutes it started coming back to me and it felt totally natural. Not exactly like riding a bike, but almost.

And it's still kinda fun.

So, what are you knitting? My oldest brother made my oldest daughter a hat out of rainbow yarn. It is one of her favorites. Knitting is on my list of things-to-learn-to-do-better.

I think it is neat that you are knitting, I used to do many things when I was a kid that I dont do or dont know how to do. I really like crafty type stuff.
