Although I've been a longtime collector of luscious fibers, I've only used them for altered art projects, quilts and etc. A co-worker was talking about her current knitting project and I got the wild idea that I should learn to knit! My 14 year old and I looked at a book and watched a brief DVD and hit the knitting road. This is my first project--a very simple purse with a little knitted flower. I had a blast and am on to more projects. Knitting rocks!
