I picked up my knitting needles again over a year ago when it became popular to knit scarves (it was also cheaper than buying premade scarves) and they made great Birthday/Christmas gifts . . . I made lots and lots of scarves, keeping only a couple for myself because I discovered I loved knitting again but I don't wear scarfs very often (just not my thing) . . . well I then had a granddaughter, Kyra, in January of this year and the knitting group I was invited to join met and I made a very fast and very, very easy lavender baby blanket using "Heaven" yarn (have to make another one for here at "grammies" as she has become attached to the blanket) . . . my next knitting project was a pair of gloves . . . that project has been set aside as I found I was not even able to get a set of "pulse warmers" knitted (ya know the cuff of the glove) . . .
Anyhoo . . . one of the girls in the knit group started knitting a purse and of course we all had to make "the purse" (same pattern-different colors) . . . four of us will be attending a conference in May and we will all be using and showing off our "glitter" purses at the banquet on Saturday night . . . hopefully I will be able to get a picuture to the four "glitter" purses attending their first big evening out . . .
I am half way through my next project which is a "felted purse" and will also be taking a class and learning how to knit a baby sweater from the neck down . . . I love making purses and this may be Birthday/Christmas presents this year . . .
