I read Scout's blog yesterday and decided to respond to the questions she posted.
1. How and when did you learn how to knit/crochet? My friend Kim taught me about 12 1/2 years ago. I started with dishcloths.
Who taught you? Maggie's Godmother, Kim
2. How has this craft impacted your life? (besides financially!) It really helps me relax! I have met some wonderful people through my hobby of knitting.
3. Pick at least one person to talk about who you have met through the knit-world and why you are thankful to have met them. Feel free to get all mushy. It is hard to pick just one person, so I am going to list two people, Dixie and Cindi, from Yellow Dog Knitting!! They are so wonderful and they have helped me become a better knitter. They are very encouraging when I think I want to take on a hard project. They are not only wonderful knitters, but I consider them my friends. I love to go down to the shop and just hang out and knit. No high pressure to buy anything, but I usually do. Everyone who works at the Dog really takes time to help the customers and their enthusiasm for the art of knitting gets passed along. I am so glad this shop opened three years ago. It really got my knitting to the forefront of my life.
I am feeling better about Maggie going hunting this weekend. I know she will be fine. I am looking forward to spending time with my mom. She wants me to take her to some craft fairs. Patrick isn't looking forward to that, but I know if I bribe him with candy or a small toy he will be much easier to deal with. I finished two dishcloths for mom, so I will be taking them to her this weekend. I am going to start on another pair of socks. Still no batteries in the camera, but hopefully I can remember to get some and post some pictures when I get home on Sunday!! Kristi of Red Dog Knits is having her babies tomorrow. Send her some good thoughts. Have a good weekend!! Happy Knitting!!
