I have recently learned to knit and I've just finished my second scarf. Yippy! I had always wanted to learn to knit. Thanks to the patience and teaching of several friends I can knit, nothing to fancy though! I also learned rug hook around the same time. That requires a bit more of my attention. Rug hooking was one of those "come take this class with me" moments. I'm glad I did. I had a lot of fun and was completely mesmerized by all of the colors in Karen's fabric room. I just stood and started at all of the fabric and all of the things Karen had made, the wheels spinning in my head. Karen is a great teacher and a wonderful lady. The picture of the scarf did not come, it was too dark. So here is my second rug hooking project. It is about 18 inches square and make a nice wall hanging. It is a bit too big for a chair pad. It is a pattern I designed, with the help of Karen Worthington from Blue Tulip Woolery, based loosely on one of my paintings, also shown. I have lots of other ideas . . . the story of my life! Lest you think I am avoiding painting (or is it me that's thinking that?) I do have 4 paintings started, and I'm trying to go at it a bit slower, but more steady. Not quite ready to show my progress. I bit too revealing at this point. Soon, though.
