Knitting and Crocheting for the Homeless, True Confession

image

Our knitting and crocheting for the homeless and other charities group was meeting this last weekend.  Noel had brought yummy food and I was having a big plate of it.  I believe it was Terry who asked, “Paula are you going to knit anything?”

The room went silent.  You could hear a knitting needle drop (tee-hee).  I responded, “Well I don’t want to rush into anything, isn’t this only our second meetup?”  Someone else chipped in, “Um, no this is our third session….”  (Unsaid by entire group: “And you haven’t started on anything yet.”)

Some sweet lady piped up “She has been taking pictures for us…..”

Okay, I admit it.  The perfect tension control exhibited by the kids is a bit intimidating.  I haven’t knit or crochet forever and those adorable young people are intimidating me with their perfect tension and perfect looking projects.

I did pick out these two beautiful skeins of yarn to start with.  I talked to Nancy, one of our fearless leaders, about what I should start with and we decided simple 8″ squares that can later be sewn into prayer blankets.  That way, until I get my tension control um controlled, I can just measure until I have 8″.  Brilliant!

Now I will just let these two skeins of yarn season a bit…….. 🙂
