tied up in knots...
What does this bring to mind?
For me, it used to be a "little old lady" sitting in a rocking chair with two knitting needles and a ball of yarn. This was my idea of it until I tried my hand at it. It actually is somewhat fun. When I say "somewhat" that is depending on what sort of knitting you are doing. I taught myself the basic crochet and enjoy it. Next up, knitting. The kind with the two long chopstick looking needles. I was lucky to find a knitting group that my mother's good friend started with her daughter. Carol is a patient person and taught me how. It may take me an hour to do 30 stitches but, by golly, I can do it! This sort of knitting became a little more like work to me instead of an enjoyable activity so when my close friend, Carrie, told me about loom knitting I was intrigued. Carrie's mother started this and taught Carrie, who in turn, taught me. I have since then taught my mom, sister in law, and another friend's mother how to do this. I caught on quick and can enjoy it while watching tv, or having a conversation with a friend. In fact, Carrie and I spent part of winter hanging out like two "little old ladies" knitting! We often joke that we are definitely old now! :-) Which by the way, I am not!!
