For the past few years I have made it a point to learn something new every year. Last year I became reacquainted with a past love, yoga and I'm so glad that I did. This year I decided I am going to teach myself how to knit.
My mother in law made me the most beautiful pot holders (the grey ones above) which rekindled my desire to learn. In addition, my sister in law also decided to get back to knitting.
Today I bought some yarn and knitting needles. I will be using this tutorial to begin. Wish me luck!
