My purple scarf: What crafts do you like to do?

On Superbowl Sunday our oldest daughter Heather went with her husband Kyle and their kids to a friend’s house for a Superbowl party.  Of course, it was just Heather’s excuse to get together with her girlfriends!

While there, her friend Stacey taught her how to knit using the Knifty Knitter.  Heather then showed me and our youngest daughter, Leah, how to knit. Leah quickly finished hers which you can see by clicking here.

I haven’t been able to work a lot on mine, but finally finished it today. Leah went on YouTube to see how to add tassles to hers, so I added some, too.

The whole experience has been relaxing. When I’ve had a lot to do during the day, faced stress, etc., sitting down on the couch or reclining in bed to knit has helped me to just slow down and breathe a little.

Heather, Leah, and I have all had a lot of fun doing this, and plan to do more for gifts. Besides, it makes me feel just a little bit like the P31 woman.  🙂 What arts and crafts do you enjoy doing? Leave your comments below.

purple knitted scarf

She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,

and enjoys knitting and sewing.

She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places

and brings back exotic surprises.

She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast

for her family and organizing her day.

She looks over a field and buys it,

then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.

First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,

rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.

She senses the worth of her work,

is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.

She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,

diligent in homemaking.

She’s quick to assist anyone in need,

reaches out to help the poor.
