I was due to go to Iraq for the first time....
Created By: H Heather

I was due to go to Iraq for the first time. Knowing that it was going to be a long year and not knowing if we would have electricity everywhere we went I decided to give knitting a try. I also enjoy reading a great deal, but carring a load of book vs. carring some yarn seemed a no brainer. I bought a kit that had a how-to book, yarn and needles and taught myself from that. It didn't take long. After doing three little "toss prodjects" to get the hang of it I made my first item, a purse. I've done countless hats and scarves. With our return to home there was the inevetable baby boom. I now spend my free time knitting up baby blankets with matching hats. They are so much fun to do. I love the vast selection of yarns and am teaching myself different designs and patterns. I have subscribed to knitting magazines that offer great prodjects. Getting on-line has been a wonderful tool for me. There are so many helpful ideas and inspiration. One of the things I look forward to is getting my newsletter from Lion Brand yarn. It keeps me reaching to expand my skill and move beyond baby blankets (I will end up doing 15 in all!). I enjoy knitting and see myself doing so for years to come.
