Let's Knit!!

Saturday, I took a knitting class...at an Alpaca Farm,
this Alpaca Farm...
 

 It was a gorgeous day so we sat outside...

 at this lovely table...
with a perfect view of the Alpaca grazing in the field.

 Here is "the start of something big"!
Don't you just love that pretty yarn...

 this hand stitched tablecloth...

 and all these pretty knitting needles.

Today, I learned to knit and pearl.
I have made a few mistakes since arriving home,
but now I think I am getting the hang of it.
 
I will be going back this Saturday and I can't wait.
 
Many thanks to Leanne, who taught me everything I now know about knitting.
She is a busy mom and an awesome knitting teacher.
If you are interested, her blog can be found here.

  9. I'm so excited that you're starting a new adventure! You look so happy working in those beautiful surroundings. I know you'll be great at knitting. Maybe if I took a class instead of trying to learn from books, I'd do better. :-)

  10. I used to love knitting, but had to give it up when I lost fine motor skills in my right hand. (You really can't knit with one hand!) Crocheting can be done a little easier w/the one hand, but that, too, fell by the wayside. I hope you enjoy the knit/purl and will be making some beautiful projects! What a glorious setting you had there!

    I can't wait to see what you make.

  12. How great is that! And, the photo's are lovely.

    I had a knitting project many years ago; it was an afghan that ended up being about twelve feet long. Seriously. :)

    Have a happy day, Debbie.

  14. How cool! You can't get a better classroom than that! I can't knit, I don't have the manual dexterity!

  15. I taught myself to knit, and although I',m not really good at it (scarf, fine. sweater, etc., nope!!), I find it very, very relaxing.

    That yarn looks so soft!

  17. That is one beautiful location in which to knit. I'm afraid I would've been pining for my camera. I wish I could knit, but I've no patience. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  18. That looks like a lot of fun. I like spending time doing crafts as well as enjoying the fresh air. It is nice you were able to do both.

  19. I used to know how to knit. I mainly do crocheted items. I have tried to make a baby blanket for all my grandchildren through the years and great grandchildren. I have one due in July; so I need to get going on it.
    I loved the pictures and I think you will enjoy knitting. I will look forward to pictures of your work.
    Blessings to you!

  24. You always find such fun things to do. I could never master knitting even though my Grandma tried to teach me. (Being a "lefty" didn't help). That is a lovely shade of yard and I can't wait to see what you create.
