Getting Together to Knit

Late yesterday afternoon my cousin Katie and I got together to knit! This has been something we have been meaning to do for a long time and I think we are both rather proud that we managed to make it happen – the next challenge is to make it a weekly event. Katie is just learning to knit but there is nothing like Christmas round the corner to make you feel inspired. In the end I didn’t do much knitting because I was slightly disorganized, but we looked online for some patterns that Katie might try, I helped her start a test project and introduced her to Ravelry (which is really a great place to look for patterns, as well as a great window into the knitting community). Of course, there was also some tea drinking and munching of cinnamon buns.

    Thanks for the tip on using the Ravelry website! I have been thinking lately about learning how to knit but didn’t really know where to begin. So that is super helpful!

    Hope all is well with you Catherine!
    Hugs,
    Allison

  2. Allison – the internet is really a great resource for knitters. Any time you don’t know how to do something you can always look it up and find instructions, tutorials or videos. Have fun! 🙂
