Happy Knitting Anniversary

I've been knitting two years as of this past weekend. Sniff sniff. Who knew something so simple would be the key to happiness? Not me. I really wish I would have found it sooner. Maybe I would have been able to graduate from college without the extended stay, not wished away JCC's first year or had to count traffic cones as a way to entertain myself on my family's many driving trips. It really has been that much of a panacea for my restless brain.

I know all of you who read this from the strange little world of knit bloggers understand this, but if you're coming here from the homeschool or gardening path I encourage you to try it. All of our crazy great-grandmothers (playing with fiber has skipped two generations in my family) were on to something.

Yay for you!! If I had been knitting in college I think I would have actually stayed awake in class. To think of all the socks I could have made...

Happy Belated Knittiversary! I agree that our ancestors were onto something. For me, it was my Grandma who taught me needlework (crochet) and (more recently) my Husband's Grandma who helped to inspire me with quilting and knitting. I have a legacy of some half-finished projects from both of them which I cherish dearly.

I don't know what I would do without my fiber projects. They bring steadiness to an otherwise crazy world.
