Thankful for My Knitting

Knitting Daily® had this on their Thankgiving newsletter last year, it has several points that I agree with and it made me smile!  

Five years ago I took an Adult Education class at our local high school with some of my friends from work. I have enjoyed knitting ever since. I would encourage anyone who likes to learn new things to take a class and learn this fun hobby.

Finished! Wisteria Shawl Collar Pullover Sweater

I created this blog so I would finish projects, this sweater has been sitting in my craft room just waiting to be sewn together! The sweater really didn't take long to knit, the procrastination of sewing it together was the delay- it really is not my favorite part of knitting. The pattern is free and can be found on the Lion Brand Website, I used the yarn below for my sweater with the color called Olympia.
Lion Brand® Amazing®
Pattern #: L0033AD

Here is my daughter modeling the completed sweater!

This was my first attempt at knitting a sweater, the pattern was easy and I thought it turned out great. I would highly recommend this pattern and yarn - just don't procrastinate as long as I did in sewing it together!
