More Learning

I have been involved in a Knit-A-Long on Ravelry.com (a knitting and crochet site) knitting the sampler from the book "The Sweater Workshop". Great fun was had all around but I finished my sampler too soon mostly because I already had the book and some experience. I did learn a few things, which is what was supposed to happen anyway but now while everyone else is knitting along I can only watch and answer questions. All that explanation brings me to our topic today which is More Learning. I have begun to learn Crochet. the dish-cloths in my pic are my first projects and I love them! The left one is Single Crochet, next is Double Crochet, and then Triple Crochet. Each completely different looking and feeling. Now back to learning more about blogging (sigh).

Learning New Things

Haven't posted in a while. No excuse really but my own procrastination. I've been reading a book called "Blogger for Dummies". Makes me feel like a dummy every time : ) because trere are so many things I didn't do when I started this blog. I only started reading it to fing out why I can't post pics anymore but the book is HUGE. I can only read so much though before my eyes cross so I have been doing other things (just not blogging). Every time I get on here I feel the need to change something I read about or document it in a post. Something like hey guys I never set up the -blah de blah blah- feature or along those lines anyway. Sad that I can't be happy after this book. there is a good note though. I found a weaving loom. Not very technical or pricy but perfect for learning, and that is just what I hope to do! I can sew, knit, and net/knot but I can't weave yet or do cross stitch or needlepoint and I really love the fiber arts. I am working my way up to the Big Learning aka spinning. Progress report later though I may move up from this blog and try again once I figure out this book and if I do I will be reposting most of these last posts and adding pics.
