They are older now, in college and trying to find their inner adult. Pretty cool concept but it doesn't always work! I am glad for that, I need to be wanted and want to be needed (by them). They are maturing into good, happy adults. They have a healthy respect for others, the world around them and most importantly themselves. They don't fall to peer pressure, they do seek advice from those in the know and are focused on their future. I am so proud of their achievements and look forward to the great things they will accomplish one day.
I booted up the computer and searched for sites that could teach me to knit. (Wish the Internet was around while I was growing up). I did have some prior experience knitting but it had been decades and to tell the truth my brain was a bit rusty with the terms and techniques. So there I sat, watching videos and reading anything and everything I could find on the Internet. I visited my local library and came home with several how-to books. After I had the basics down and I wanted to venture ahead with more interesting things than scarves so I enrolled in a knitting class at my local yarn shop (LYS). It was here that I became obsessed, not so much with knitting, but with yarn. I would walk the store feeling all the different types of fibers. I bought a few different types with absolutely no idea what I would use them for and so the obsession began.
I confess: Yes, I am a yarnaholic, no I don't need help!
