Knitting: The weaving of two sticks and some thread back and forth, mostly done by grannies. Have you ever thought of knitting as more than just that? I know I didn’t, but I sure do now.

Knitting: The weaving of two sticks and some thread back and forth, mostly done by grannies. Have you ever thought of knitting as more than just that? I know I didn’t, but I sure do now. It came Christmas time, and my friend decided she was going to knit all of us scarves. She comes back a week or so later with beautiful scarves for everyone. She said that she had made them herself and for awhile I refused to believe her! But once I realized it was true, I knew that I needed to learn how to knit. I got two knitting sticks and some yarn and went to work. Youtube here I come! I searched everywhere for videos, tutorials, anything to help me learn. After watching about a dozen videos, I finally learned how to cast on and knit. Knitting was now my everyday pass time! I would knit and watch TV, knit in the car, and even knit at my brother's basketball games! It kept me busy wherever I went, and the great thing is that I had a purple scarf in no time. This scarf was filled with mistakes and errors and honestly, I wouldn’t wear it in public. But, its a start and the only place I could go from there is up. I now knit all the time making whomever wanted one a scarf. Knitting may be labeled as the sport of the old, but I would call it the pass time of the new generation.
