Girls, I'm Knitting! Woohoo!
Oh my gosh...I found a knitting angel...I told you about my 1st knitting lesson gone bad...well, I found a knitting angel at my LYS...she spent about an hour with me last Saturday and I'M KNITTING! I'm over half way done on my washcloth! YIPPEE!

I took my Best Friend ( that also was with me on that 1st lesson) with me today to my LYS. She was so discouraged after that first lesson and I told her to be patient...that she would get it. My knitting angel, Donna, who came to the shop today, just to help us...taught her how to knit too. Not only that, I bought yarn to make a Booga Bag and she's going to help us this Saturday!

Girls, now I know what you're all going crazy about with this fiber...WE ARE SO EXCITED...WE CAN HARDLY STAND IT! Donna works part-time at the LYS and she is teaching us for FREE! She is not charging us on Saturday...CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

And I also found out, from Donna, that there is an Alpaca farm about 3 miles from my house and they sell their yarn there too...can you believe that?

Well, I would love to chat, but I've gotta go knit! LOL!

P.S. Donna was telling us how we will probably have more than one project going at a time and now I know why! LOL! I have to tell you all when I read your posts about having multiple projects going at once, I thought to myself,"I'm not going to do that...I'm going to finish one thing at a time!" And then Donna said, " Would you like to start your Booga Bag this Saturday?" AND WE SAID YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
