I did almost the same thing! I learned to knit in about 1970...knitted for several years...then when the babies and subsequent part-time jobs came along...knitting became a distant long-lost love. I sewed for the kids mostly, and crosstitched for a few years, too. BUT, when the grandbabies started piling on board...I started knitting again. Baby blankies, baby hats, baby booties, baby sweaters, baby-anything! This rekindled my zeal for knitting. Now, all of our 5 kids are grown, married, and having babies of their own. I don't sew or crosstitich at all anymore. I knit, knit, knit!
I, too, have learned many new techniques from Amy's videos! It has really helped me "tweak" and "fine tune" my knitting skills. However, when compared to the world of knitting at large, I feel like a kindergartner! It is humbling to read the roster of knitting classes at events like Stitches West! I don't have a clue what most of it is!
Anyway, I am happy in my own little world of knitting! What I knit, I knit well!
We are so happy that you have joined our knitting family here at KH! Please don't feel shy about posting photos of your projects in the Whatcha Knitting section! We love to applaud all projects! It is truly inspiring. Well, and that is the main reason I had so many OTN's and WIP's this past year! Viewing what others are doing...I get myself all inspired to jump on board and knit the same thing! Sigh. My goal right now is to get all my OTN's (aka "On the Needles") done! I am about there!
Hugs from all!
