I think I may be addicted to yarn already! I made a trip to the local craft store yesterday for supplies, just gonna get some needles and stitch markers and other necessary things. And I left with some needed supplies & 4 new skeins of yarn in all sorts of pretty colors! I have no idea what I'll make with them but I don't care. They were pretty and I know I'll get creative and make some beautiful things with them. I'm still learning, I mean have learned 3 stitches so far, but I couldn't help myself. Now I'm off to learn more stitches & I need to find a way to store & organize my beautiful yarn and other supplies : )

So I'm kinda new to the blogging thing. I'm actually starting a couple of new things lately. Started playing WoW a few months ago, I've never been a gamer but needed a hobby so there ya go. I've also picked up knitting in the last couple weeks. I think I may be turning into a dork, but I like to think I'm just keeping an open mind. I like to be busy and learn new things so I think these two new hobbies will do the trick. I've always been around crafty people and wanted to find something that would suit me. I had some encouragement from family and inspiration from a friend so we'll see where this new hobby will take me! I can't belive how relaxing it is during the learning parts for me to sit and learn the basic stitches. I bought a book and found some videos and I've jumped right in. I'm excited to see the beautiful things I can create and who knows, maybe I'll inspire someone else to pick up knitting as well. Now if I can just stay patient enough to learn the basics before I start projects . . .
