Will wonders never cease….

I have taught my little sister to knit!

She has been on the refusal train for WAY to long, and the knitting store, The Yarn Basket, is having a KNIT PINK day in October.  My family is big into breast cancer awareness and she wanted to knit or crochet squares with everyone else, so I started out trying to teach her to crochet.

God love her, her little hands didn’t have the strength required to pull the yarn through, and she kept dropping the needle, so I let her cool down (she’s a hot head, grin), and a few days later I offered to teach her to knit.

She accepted and off we went.  I’ve had to pull out a few of her rows, but she’s getting it, and while the knitting does bother her hands, it’s not as bad as the crocheting.

I think after she makes the squares for the KNIT PINK day, she will lay down her (my) needles, laugh.

Never let it be said I wasn’t able to teach someone to cast on, knit, and purl (we haven’t gotten to the bind off part yet, laugh).

Until next time…happy yarning!


Cabin reserved…

thanks to my baby sister!

We are going to take a mini-vacation this summer.  Sorry, can’t tell you where nor when, don’t want to deal with any crazies…sorry.

I can tell you it will be days with no dogs, chickens, cats, phone, nor people to interrupt my already planned out schedule, see below.

Yoga, eat, biking, photographing, knitting/crocheting, reading, watching some satellite tv, more yoga, sleeping…repeat daily….  Sounds like the life of a superstar, so I’m pretending to be a superstar for a few days, although I have no one to cook/clean for me, but I think I can manage that without any problems.

I should be released from the doctor by then, so maybe I can get in a few mini-jogs, as I’m still afraid to run.  I’ll take my camera (which is huge) and that will force me to walk/jog and guarantee I get in some nature photos.

I’m super-uber excited!!!!!!!!
