Wednesday Mornings

 Wednesday mornings are quickly becoming the highlight of my week. They start off with a scone and cocoa in the coffee shop with my buddy Sarah where we chat about deep and meaningful things for 30 minutes before we take our drinks and head to our knitting class.
 I think this passion for knitting may soon be classified as an addiction. I'll keep you posted. So far I've finished a pair of arm warmers (with another in progress), this neck warmer below and I have now started on a little button clasped bag to carry things in my purse. I may very well have just bitten off more than I can chew.

 This is one of the many things next on my list. If you haven't tried knitting I urge you to take a class! But first you may want to clear your schedule for all of winter. As for me? I'll be curled up on the sofa with a ball of yarn, my needles and Season 1 of Felicity on DVD.

  8. Oh, how I wish I could knit! I'm a crocheter who really longs to be a knitter, but every time I try it feels like I've removed both hands and reattached them backwards. Ma brain jist don't work that way. This has left me living vicariously through other's, such as yourself, who make beautifully warm and cozy things.

  13. Wonderful! Have you read the books by Debbie Maccomber called "A Good yarn?" It is a wonderful series about a yarn shop and all the classes and clients that flow through the shop - good reads! SUE

  14. J e a l o u s ! I wish I knew how.. I can crochet but not very well. I do better with imperfect crafts like altered books. I do lots of cigar boxes into little cabinets and such. Wish I lived close to a coffee shop and knitting class!

  15. Knitting IS addictive! I've been wanting to take a more advanced class to try to make a baby sweater or something. I hit a road block last winter when I tried to make hats to match my girl's new coats. They turned out large enough to fit an elephant. I'm easily discouraged!

  16. On Jim's behalf I feel I should disclose that you are an indian giver with that snazzy neck warmer. Albeit one super awesome and talented indian giver!

  17. I haven't knitted since I was a kid. I am afraid to pick up a needle for fear it would become one more crafting "addiciton" Your neckwarmer looks great! Hugs-Diana

  18. I started taking knitting classes last winter but the group just never kept going. I try to keep learning by watching online tutorials. So far only scarves, but I have hopes of maybe something else someday!Sounds like you have wonderful Wednesday mornings!~Hugs, Patti

  20. I love your neck warmer! would also love to learn to knit and i forgot about felicity...how i loved that show...all in all...a tad bit jealous of your day! :)

  21. 1. Jealous. No other word for it.
    2. FPFG is right about the hair. You've got the best hair ever.
    3. I can see your picture in the background. And I got really confused about where it is, then remembered that everything is mirror image backwards and it all makes sense now. It makes me want to pop up the stairs and visit with Maddie, and then come back downstairs and pilfer your bookshelf, have some coffee in my "T" mug and curl up on the couch.
    Then go to lunch.
    A girl can dream, right?

  22. Oh I'm envious! I love the IDEA of knitting, and I'm even a part of a knitting group, but until I finish a (rather large) cross stitch project for my mom, I won't allow myself to pick up a new hobby!
