Taking up Knitting

Friday, January 11, 2013

I have a new hobby.....knitting. Wow! is it fun. It's amazing how you can go from a ball of yarn to a beautiful hat. A few years ago I tried to learn on youtube, but it was not a success. I had questions, I could not properly see the person's hand gestures, it was a disaster. I've been working with a private teacher for about 2 months. Because I am left handed it is hard find a class.
Now I am addicted!

If you live in the San Diego area here are my go to places:
