Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


I don't think so, you're just looping yarn around 2 sticks!

My Granny showed me how when I was a kid and after she died I stopped. But 2 years ago I took a class at a local yarn shop with my sister and it's snowballed from there. You should find your local shop and see their class schedule. I have never been to a shop without everyone being so nice and helpful and encouraging.

The nicest part of knitting to me is that of helps me relax and destress because I have to pay attention to the moment. The tension in my body and mind is reflected in the fabric I create so it keeps me on point. Also, the feel of the soft squishy yarn in my hands, the satiny wooden knitting needles and the colors of the yarn, it's such a tactile and visual pleasure - like cooking! The feel of the food, the knives, the heat/cold, the feeling you are creating something out of nothing, the parallels are amazing!

I hope you try it and PM me if you need help finding a store!
