I can KNIT!

I have been wanting to learn how to knit for a few years now. My brother, David tried to teach me when my oldest was about 1 year old. He died 3 years ago, and this is the one thing that I feel like I can have in common with him and that I can do to remember him. I have a ball of yarn that he bought me when he was trying to teach me, I can't bring myself to use it yet. I think I just need the perfect project and better skills.

My sister, Alissa finally convinced me that I could teach myself to knit. And with a lot of help from youtube and a lot of phone calls to my sister, I finally knit my first project, a cute little shrug for Paisley.

It is oh so imperfect, but I LOVE it.

Amazing! A woman in our ward taught me to knit. I was a little too ambitious with the first project I tried, got really frustrated and haven't picked it back up in months. Maybe I need to try again...
