Knitting Thoughts

Yarn yumminess from Michelle @ Dancing Dog Dyeworks

About 2 years ago I found knitting again. My mom was a knitter and taught me when I was about 12-13. I knit a stuffed horse and didn't knit another thing until 2yrs ago. I don't know why I decided I wanted to learn again. I just had this desire. Maybe I saw some pretty yarn, saw someone knitting, who knows. But whatever it was, I'm glad it's in my life again.

I love the feel of soft, squishy yarn, the sound of clicking needles and the acomplishment of creating. It's a connection to my Mom. Something she enjoyed and did so many years ago, and then passed on to me. When I knit, the memory of her is in every stitch.
