My new craft of Knitting

when I was in Oregon my friend Micki taught me the basic knit and purl stitches. I have only made a few things as it is much slower than crocheting. Hope you like the pics. I have to make a few of the 88 cloths, as this one was for Don and Micki and Pammy both want one.

what I have been up to lately

Well, it has been awhile since I last posted. I have been doing alot. I went to Omaha, and Minneasota with Don and Travis to visit my friend Pam after the loss of her husband. I also went to a Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers game, and the Rockies won, and we went to the Mall of America, that place is huge. Then I also went to Oregon to meet my online crochet friend Micki. I also met another friend from an old group that I was in who also crochets too. Her name is Yolie. while I was in Oregon, Micki taught me how to knit, so I have made a couple washcloths so far, but you know me, I pulled them out a few times to get them perfect. LOL. I have lots of pictures to share, and I also got to see the Oregon coast and we actually went on a total tour of the Heceta Head Lighthouse. It was awesome. Some of the pics I have to get from Micki, as my phone and camera batteries ran out. lol Oh, I also got to ride in the pace car here at the local track and I also went to see Mark Chesnutt at the Grizzly Rose here and got to meet him out back after the show. He was really nice and sweet to talk to. I am also working on some Christmas gifts and I need to make like 3 baby blankets. and some more crocheted washcloths for a friend that ordered them. I am keeping busy. lol
