Cindy’s Creations

Hope everyone had a wonderful easter. We woke up to rain, 25 mph winds and 48 degrees, which made it very chilly in NM.

We had a quiet day with DH watching TV and me reading 2 new knitting books and teaching myself to cast on and do the knit stitch. I’ve ripped all the stitches out as I had purchased very fine yarn. I will be picking up some worsted yarn, like the book calls for. All my life I’ve wanted to know how to knit and could never find anyone to teach me, I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of using the internet and teach yourself books before. Thanks to CraftyGryphon for inspiring me.
