Hey everyone! Well, it happened, we got several inches of snow last night. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for spring - anybody else with me on this? I'm ready for long days, evenings at the park with the family, catching fireflies, grilling out...etc... Ugh...I hope that wherever you all are, that the weather is sunny bright and lovely (just don't rub it in...mmmm-k?)
Today, I'm sharing a fun layout that I made last weekend celebrating this wonderfully knit blanket that was mine when I was a baby. Now, PJ uses it and it just makes me so happy that stuff like that lasts so long. And it's also really got me thinking about venturing out and learning new crafty things. As much as I love to scrapbook, the creative person inside of me is seeking for new projects. Soooo, I've decided that I'm going to learn how to knit. I love the idea of being able to make items that are durable, can be washed and are completely homemade... I'm even thinking that if I can get good enough at it that I might try to sell some goods on Etsy - we'll see. For now, I'm just going to be in awe of the talents of others and hope that their talents somehow wear off on me.
Here's a closer look at today's layout...
Patterned Paper: BasicGrey - Basics, Sassafrass Lass - Indie Girl
Titlework: Sassafrass Lass
Embellishments: Sassafrass Lass
Ink: American Crafts, Autumn Leaves
Tool: Sewing Machine
So do any of you out there know how to knit and if so, do you have any suggestions on the best places to learn...I've looked up a few tutorials online and wondering if the best place to learn would be using a book? Any suggestions?
Thanks so much and have a great day!
