This was my first attempt at needle felting and I loved it. I did this quite awhile ago and just finally finished it into this pillow.
Now to feed the addiction, I found a link online to a Pittsburgh Knitting and Crodheting Festival/Trade show/Enablers Anonymous event that was happening over the weekend. So I gathered a fellow addict and away we went yesterday morning. After being away from all things yarn for so long pursuing a painting career....lol....this was a revelation for me! About the third booth and first swipe of the debit card, a feeling came over me that I don't think was brought on from too much coffee. I WANT IT ALL! I want to learn, I want to buy, I want to be able to do it all! (Truth be told, I think I had this same feeling when I wanted to learn to paint 25 years ago)
Now, thanks to Memaw, I can crochet about anything...those tiny, fine little doilies to jumbo afghans but knitting I am struggling with. Those straight scarves and the dishcoths that I thought were confusing are nothing compared to this adorable sweater pattern that I bought to make for a granddaughter...not sure which one yet because I don't understand guage and sizing so we'll see who it is for when we see how big it turns out. Anyway, I started the sweater yesterday and Tuesday night we start a knitting group....I can't wait, how fun is this going to be? I have to clean my house though, the first meeting is here!!!!
