Today, Christmas 2009, mom became an all around accomplished fiber artist! Not only can she spin yarn, felt yarn, and crochet yarn...she can KNIT it too! After years of frustration with knitting she picked up a learn to knit DVD at the library Monday. Within minutes of starting the dvd mom was knitting successfully! Little did she know that all these years she was yarning over the wrong way. But even so, mom states that she still prefers crochet to knitting (I can confirm that fact: She crocheted dad a hat yesterday and is crocheting him slippers now too!). Way to go mom! Here is to learning yet another lifelong skill before the new year!
