My new hobby!


I have been often asked "What are you making?" In which I respond "A rectangle." Our stake is doing a service project where we were able to knit or crochet a rectangle and then they are being collected, turned into blankets and given away to charity. I wanted to serve, I love service, but I didn't know how to do either craft. I decided to learn how to knit. When my mom was in town in February she helped me pick out the appropriate tools and and then I learned how to knit. Here is my picture of the rectangles I have made. I have done a few different techniques. And I have decided I quite like to knit. In fact I think I may be getting a little obsessed with it. The other day I couldn't sleep so I keep thinking of future knitting projects. The next few days were spent looking for the proper yarn so I could get some sleep. This will be my first official project. One that will be all mine from start to finish. Be on the look out for another post with the finished project. I can't wait I am so excited. Also if you want a knitted rectangle just let me know, I already have one request :).

Yes Kristen, I was thinking I would need a few rectangles for my toesies. They get quite cold. Could you hook me up with some?

Havn't any of the other wives told you about our secret plans to prevent our husband from filling our houses with huge TVs? JK

I like the blue square second to the bottom best. Nicely done. Missing you from Houston this week.
