Crafting and Never Ending Knitting

Years ago I helped teach Sunday School at the church my family attended.  The lesson plans often included a bible story followed by a short craft.  I vividly remember a small child laughing at my attempts to make a craft and pointing out how superior their craft was.  Needless to say my confidence in my crafting abilities is pretty low. Despite this I’ve taken on a few small craft projects in recent years – often as presents for Andrew.

I also started learning to knit a few years.  My first project was a small scarf.  I watched YouTube videos, pulled out lots of stitches, and eventually managed to knit a scarf that included knit and purl stitches.  It wasn’t perfect but I learned a lot and felt awesome for knitting something.

Not wanting to get too fancy for my second project I decided I would knit a blanket — blankets are just like huge scarves for your lap right?  Two years later I’m finally putting the finishing touches on this seemingly eternal knitting project.  I get marks for preserving, right?  I think I’ll pick something much smaller for my third knitting project.
