Knitting Is Addictive.....

There is no doubt about it - knitting is not just a past time - nor a way to kill time - nor a passing fancy.

Next thing you know, the yarn is fighting the quilting fabric for space.
My knitting is not elaborate. No fancy capes, elegant sweaters or jazzy socks - yet. Just functional down-to-earth knitting - washcloths. Yes, functional knitted cloths that can be used as washcloths or dishcloths. These are not your Auntie Em's dishcloths.....no sir. Suitable for framing, lol.


Oh yes, it's a flamingo. You gotta love the way this one knits

Yes- I quilt - but I do love to knit.....
