my Ann Norling Hat

Well, I finally broke down and took the beginner hat class at Twisted Yarns. Boy, am I glad that I took it. I learned how to knit on two interchangibles instead of DPN's. What a concept that I'm thrilled about. I'm happy that I don't "Have" to work with DPN's. They were tough to work with!

I am now ready to decrease on the hat and should have it finished next week. It will be posted on my ravelry page. (

I just placed an order with knitpicks and am ready to begin my next project.....a purse. I ran across this adorable red,white and blue purse and wanted to stitch it just in time for July 4th!

Anyway, happy knitting,

April 2009

Wow! Our knitting group here in Kingwood is taking off! The ladies have decided the name for the group is Kingwood Yarn It, Darn It group. We wanted to include not only knitters, but crocheters and anyone else who loves yarn. We have our third meeting at the Kingwood Library scheduled for April 25th. It sounds like there will be a nice turn out.

I have completed my sursa shawl and love it. Check out the photos on ravelry. I am scheduled to take the hat class this month at Twisted Yarns. I just can't seem to keep my stitches straight while using DPN's. Oh well, "patience, grasshopper." :-) So, hopefully a class will help me learn how to keep it all straight.

Wishing everyone a wonderful spring and I hope everyone finds time for yarn,

My first knitting group meeting

Today we had success with the first knitting group in Kingwood at the public library. I met some wonderful people who share the same passion for yarn as I do. The nice thing about our group is that the skill level ranges from beginner to advanced. It was so nice to share knitting suggestions with each other. Our next meeting will take place at Kingwood Library March 21st from 10-12. So, if you are in the area, and share the passion, please join us. We would love to have you.
