Mollie Makes=Amy Makes

I am in love with this magazine.
Have you seen it!
oh, it is so full of inspiring artists and color and FUN!
This issue came with a little surprise giveaway for you to instantly make a craft.
How fun is that!
As I sat and browsed thru it last night, I got to excited to wake up today and knit.I have started on my kitties blankie and it is so much fun.
I learned how to knit 9 years ago...then I quickly learned that I liked crocheting better.
But I love the look of knit stitch better. It is so clean and straight lined.
So I have chosen to get out my needles once again to work with this beautiful yarn.
My hands and fingers are NOT thanking me. I know why I like crochet better, not only is it faster but it does not give me claw hands. LOL
Nothing like knitting to show how old I am getting.
But I will keep on keepin' on cause I love the look so far of this little blankie.
Have a great Saturday everyone, and go pick up a copy of Mollie Makes, you will fall in love.

Oooh, I'll have to look for that mag. I can't believe how far you already got with knitting that kitty blanket! You are fast! I feel the same way about knitting, and prefer crocheting to get instant results. But that knit stitch is so much neater. I love what you have so far Amy!

Hi Amy, beautiful yarn!!!
I love crocheting and knitting too. I haven't done in in about a year, but once the weather gets cooler, I'm always on the lookout for beautiful yarn.
And I know what you mean about knitting giving you "claw hands", it does that to me too.
Have a great weekend creating.
