My friend Suzy over at Not A Fertile Myrtle is hosting a Show & Tell meme. Of course it’s a new opportunity to share some pics, which I love to do, so I’m IN!
Today’s Show & Tell item is really a little embarrassing to me. I started working on it on Thanksgiving weekend 2009 and I’m still not finished with it yet. That weekend my friend, Kim, taught me how to knit. I made a scarf (which I don’t use) but later went to JoAnn’s and found some beautiful and soft yarn that drew me in. I had no idea when I walked in the store what I wanted to make. But when I found the yarn it had instructions for making a prayer shawl. I thought it was a great idea specifically because it is so cold in our Lifegroup (Sunday School) classroom at church. We have a collection of knitted wraps that we take out when we go to class each Sunday morning.
It is super soft and a beautiful shade of gold. Of course the picture doesn’t do anything for the real thing. Don’t you just hate that? Anyway, I am about half done. I’m not really following any specific instructions. I learned how to start a project by watching a You Tube video because I couldn’t remember what Kim had shown me. Now I am just knitting a few rows whenever the urge hits me. I’m not counting rows. I’m just gonna stop when I feel like it’s the length I want it to be. And I have no idea how to end a project. So, maybe I will have Suzy show me or hit up You Tube again. I would like to learn how to do different kinds of stitches. I don’t even know the stitch I am doing now.
Well, that’s my Show & Tell entry for today. I think I will go knit now. And the next time Suzy and I have lunch I’m gonna take my project along to have a REAL Show & Tell session. When are we having lunch again?
Swing on over to Suzy’s blog at Not A Fertile Myrtle and share your Show & Tell entry. I’m excited to see what you have to share too. I feel like I’m in first grade all over again. Although a 43 year old in 1st grade just seems a little sad…..Ok, a LOT sad…….
This happens to be my 1000th post! In order to celebrate that I will be giving away a $10 Target giftcard to a random commenter to this post. That’s the only requirement. Just post a comment and at the end of the day (Midnight) you may receive a $10 Target gift card. That simple! Huh? Did you have something to say? That’s what I thought!
