Gee, You knit?

What did 50 Cent say to his grandmother?

Gee, you knit??

(It's funnier if you say the punch line in your gangsta voice.)

(Don't lie, you have a gangsta voice.)

(Yes, you do.)

About 6 or 7 years ago I asked this gorgeous lady to teach me how to knit.

Whenever I think about that day, I smile. It's definitely a memory that will stay in my heart forever. And every time I pick up my knitting, I think of her.

Grandma O  (Or GG as the boys know her) is a knitter from way back. I have a few things she knitted for me when I was a kid safely tucked away. All these years later, they are still in mint condition and they almost make me wish we had a little girl to pass them onto.

Almost.

Unfortunately I kept up the knitting for only a short time. Another hobby that got pushed aside in the midst of college graduation, working, planning a wedding, having a baby....and here we are.

I'd been meaning to pick it up again.

I mean to do a lot of things.

Just before Christmas I found out one of the ladies sat down with her mother in law and learned how to knit.

I'll jump on that bandwagon!

I didn't stick with knitting long enough the first go around to make anything other than a scarf.

So I started another scarf.

I've been working on this since the week between Christmas and New Years. And I'm not quite half done. (It's going to be a rolled infinity scarf. I don't know if that's a real thing. I might have made it up.)

I'm so over it.

But I will finish it!!

Eventually.

To break up the monotony of straight knitting, I picked up some new wool, needles and a book of simple slippers.

I only managed a slipper and a half (in Ryan's big foot size) before I ran out of wool.

Oops!

On the bright side, it's a piece of cake pattern.

Kadyn asked me to make him a pair of slippers so we went to the store last week to pick out yarn.

Cute, right?

And I turned these out in only a couple hours.

I have a bunch of projects pinned and waiting.

I'm thinking either a hat or leg warmers with big, chunky wooden buttons next.

My goal is make this hat and sweater for Graysen by next winter.

I die of cute every time I look at that picture.

Just die!

What about ya'll? Do I have any fellow knitters out there?
