A Very New Skill

This summer has been so relaxing. It's the first time in a few years that I've had the time to simply do nothing. Ahh...

In the last week or so, I've finally begun feeling relieved, unburdened, rested, healthy. It's helped me relax to take care of some of the items on my to do list... and to simply leave some items alone for now.

I haven't been doing as much crocheting or crafting or posting, but I'm ok with that. I am finally feeling truly rested.

With all this resting, though, has come the space to try out a completely new skill- knitting. I'm showing you my first project- as you can see, it ended up wonky.

It was just a simple wash cloth to practice my new skills, but made wonky when I tried to add a border. Still, it makes me smile to see the smooth stockinette in the center.

Here she is in all her wonky glory!

By the way, I now know firsthand how the stockinette stitch can curl.
