My New Favorite Hobby

Okay, like I have time for anything else in my life. I did manage to squeeze it in though. I taught myself how to knit from a book. I love it. It's a great feeling when you finish a nice project.

The picture above is the latest scarf completed. It's by far my favorite. Now I am working on my first sweater. I completed the back and have started on the front. It's for my three year old so hopefully it will not take me forever and a day to complete.

Next I will have to make something for the baby. I'm so excited to have a hobby that I enjoy so much. I crochet too but I like the patterns for knitting better. I think it's much more trendy. My children love it when I make them something.

I still have a lot to learn. There's only so much you can learn from a book. I've picked up a lot of tricks and tips from the show "Knitty Gritty," my new favorite television show. I have the DVR scheduled to record it twice a day. I watch it whenever I can slip it in. I will most certainly have the marathon of Knitty Gritty recording while I watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. Too bad football is over for the season. I love to knit while watching football. It's my favorite thing to do!
