 I finished the vest!  I can't get him to wear a sweater but he will humor me with a vest.

 I love knitting.  It feels good working with beautiful yarns and it is a portable craft.  As my mom says "Always take your knitting."  She has been known to knit a few rows while waiting at a traffic light.
These days it's almost easier to knit in the car.  The new puppy has cut into my nightly knitting schedule!

My next project: a hat for myself  with some super soft, pale blue yarn.

Wow. I'm impressed. Knitting is one of those things I desperately want to master but don't seem to have the actual patience to do it. Any tips? :)

Knitting is a made with love gift. James, enjoy your vest that was knit with a Mother's love.

Hi again Ashley! Knitting and I have grown to love each other but I will be honest and say that first piece can be very frustrating. Holding those knitting needles and managing the grasp on the yarn reminds me of a fumbling 2 year old trying to use those big kid scissors. Anyway, you have to be really motivated to learn but once it clicks it's really fun! The thing that motivated me is a shop I found that had the most beautiful natural yarns and they offered a class. It was so much fun and now I am hooked.
