Well, the new year is upon us! This cheery hat and scarf should make the cold weather more bearable. I knitted the scarf just to see if I could remember how and to see if knitting seems as slow as I remember. Yes to both! I think I will stick with crocheting. I got to thinking about knitting because I'm reading Maggie Sefton's latest book about her Lambspun yarn shop and all the knitters who are constantly popping in carrying their tote bag with their ongoing projects. I mean really.....who has time to carry around their project. Obviously, they are working on soft sweaters and not king size afghans but that's just my harumph. The stories are sweet and I do enjoy them so thought I'd give knitting a try. Guess it's just not my thing or else I'm just not coordinated to handle two needles. It doesn't make me sane and crocheting does, although my husband might take exception to the sane bit. Just kidding! All is well in my end of the world. How 'bout yours? P.S. The characters in the book are taking a class on crocheting so they are branching out.
