First Post...so here I am

So here I am.  I started reading this blog about 6 months ago when I added it to my knitting page on My Yahoo.  I have a daughter 9 who knits, and a son who is 7 that has just learned.  Imagine the surprised faces at my daughter's Tae Kwon Do calss when he sat on the side lines and whipped that out!

 I wish it wasn't that way.  i am sure you guys have experienced similar looks.  Gawd.  I use knitting in my meditation practice.  The repetitive stitches and rythmn of the needles helps to clear my head. Currently I am working on a Shepherd Jacket from Peace Fleece.  For those of you who have never checked out their website, please do at hyyp://peaclefleece.com   I am  also working on a basketweave shawl. I  haven't gotten into anything too heavy yet.  My grandmother taught me years ago.  I have stopped and started, stopped and havenow been knitting for about 5 years.  I  consider myself still a novice b/c I really haven't ventured into anything real difficult yet.  Getting there.  Nice to be here.

Basket weave

Here's my latest creation, another dishcloth.  I really like this pattern, and it's so easy: knit 5, purl 5!  I think I shall try the next one with smaller squares (knit 3, purl 3) and see what develops... keep your needles crossed for me.
