A friend just called and told me he was crocheting!! He is coming to visit for Thanksgiving and wants me to show him how to knit. This is very exciting as I am hoping it will be something he grows to like and it will keep his hands busy instead of holding cigarettes!! When I talked to him he was excited that he was actually able to create something. I told him that is part of what draws me to knitting is that I MADE IT!! I doubt I will ever become the knitter some of you other posters are but the fact that I am able to make something that is not only attractive but useful is hugely satisying.
I am making plans to attend the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival in Feb this coming year, in Tacoma, WA. Has anyone ever been??? A friend of mine lives in Gig Habor, WA and invited me to attend with her. I am sooooo excited, but would love to hear from anyone who has heard of it and/or attended. From what I have read and heard they have fiber vendors and classes on everything from spinning to knitting and BEYOND! So...let me hear from you.
Always knit for fun!!!!
