Learning something new

I finally learned how to knit. I have wanted to learn but have never had time. Last week I ended up out of town because my transmission went out. I had a lot of time on my hands so I bought a book some needles and yarn and sat down and learned the basic knit stitch and purl stitch as well as how to cast on and cast off. It is harder than crocheting. I am making a scarf for my little one to use next year and than I will try a new project.

Ooooh I'm so jealous! I want to take up knitting...maybe I should buy a book over the summer and get casting on and off too. Apparently Julia Roberts taught the whole cast of Mona Lisa Smile how to knit, it's how she passes her time on set...allegedly!
