Knitting

I was clearing out a closet when I found a box containing several skeins of yarn and a work-in-progress sweater - a project I had abandoned when my eldest son was born. Back in those days before my boys came along, I knitted quite a bit.

 I took out the sweater from the box and thought I could just pick up where I left off.

I gave up after knitting just  a few rows. God knows how many stitches I had dropped!  All that concentration and counting was making my head spin! And I itched each time the mohair sweater came into contact with my skin. Seriously, knitting in the tropics where the temps are in the 90's is crazy! How the hell did I do it in those days!??!!

I am so done with knitting!

Ha! Then I found Sonja's video on YouTube.


Who needs yarn when you have royal icing!

Showing off my 'knit' projects!

So cute! I knitted years ago, mainly making baby blankets. My mom knitted a lot, hats, socks, sweaters. I tried to make a scarf a about 10 years ago. It just wasn't as fun knitting as when I was younger, so I shelved it. I think I might want to learn to crochet sometime.

THAT is CRAZY! I think I could have knit that little guy faster than it took her to decorate all those stitches onto the cookie! It's beautiful though. I say it all the time: I would feel so guilty eating all that work.
