I grew up with a mom who crocheted and did needlepoint. She taught me both of those things. I can’t remember a time when I have not created things with needle and fiber. In my adult life I taught myself to cross-stitch and knit. These days I can honestly say knitting is my favorite. However, with a dresser full of kitting, crocheting, needlepoint and cross-stitch supplies, not to mention a closet full of fabric and card making and scrap booking materials it’s hard to say what is truly my favorite form of crafting. I like to do it all!!! At present I’m knitting an afghan for my oldest daughter. I love cabling and am really enjoying this pattern. It is a repeat of ten rows and something I can do while listening to the T.V. or having a conversation.
I picked this pattern after finishing an afghan for my son who recently graduated from HSU with a BS degree in Forestry. The pattern I did for him was the Nature in Natural pattern at http://www.lionbrand.com. It was a complicated pattern but I am here to tell you that I learned so much about knitting a much more about myself. That…will be another post.
