I had a recent knitting lesson from my sweet Aunt which, by the way, she was more than willing to give.  After an hour spent learning ‘the ropes,’ I took off on my own knitting project while we chatted away the afternoon.  


My mind became a dictionary of knitting terms as I learned how to cast-on.


And make knit stitches.  And purl stitches.  And stockinette stitches.


And on top of that, I learned how to gauge and how to cast-off.  Just the basics really.


But, most importantly, I learned how soft and pretty her hands are. 

Aren’t these hands soft and pretty?

I want to have hands like that when I grow up.


So with all this great knowledge, I knit my own wonderful creation.

I’m a knitting genius.
