Knitting Bunny

A little cartoon I found on I don't have any pictures today, I thought some entertainment was in order.

Just thinking about knitting and how it has taken over...I mean...affected my life. For the better. I find it is so wonderful to always have something to keep my hands and mind busy. It is so calming and relaxing, and the Lord knows I need as much of that as I can get in my life. Each stitch is a prayer sometimes. It has given me some wonderful friends, especially the Friday Night Knitting Group. I have wonderful sweaters, etc. and so do my family. These are all simple basic things that knitting does for me...also is the fact that it connects me to the women in my past. Thinking mostly of Gram, who knitted for every new baby in the family and helped me take my first knitting stitches when I was small. (And didn't panic when I wasn't really interested...she knew the "bug" would bite me someday!) If you are reading today and this makes you thankful for knitting, please leave a comment for me. Just click on the comments at the bottom of this post. It would be lovely to hear your thoughts on knitting, even if you aren't a knitter. (I appreciated other's knitting long before I was a knitter!)

Knitting is wonderful. I have been forever hooked (or unhookes, since I don't really crochet!)

I've been knitting for a few years now and can't stop. I too tried when I was young, but quickly got bored with scarves and garter stitch. Now I knit mostly sweaters and socks.

My sweet Gramma Monzo had the patience to teach me how to crochet and knit. I have her needles and hooks and her knitting bag too. I am always remembering her as I knit blankets and hats now for my new grand-daughter. Basic stuff for me, but such a relaxing time full of memories. Hopefully I can continue the tradition of needle and thread with Gemma.

I remember your Grandma! I wish I had been paying more attention when my own Gram tried getting me interested in knitting. She always loved it.
