Last spring, my reading list included several Debbie Macomber books where the main characters were avid knitters. The tales peaked my interest in giving this craft another try; I don't think I've touched knitting needles since I was a child trying to learn from Grandma and her dear friend Harriet. I didn't even have knitting needles in my crafting stash, just one lonely crochet hook that I used a few times in college.
So, I checked out YouTube and bought some supplies.
I finished Noah's sweater shortly after Christmas. He isn't very interested in wearing it because he claims it's too big. I think he'll get some use out of it next winter, and he has wore it a few times so far. It sure looks handsome on him!

- Leg warmers for me :)

I got a few more projects queued up now. I have a whole collection of knitting supplies that came from Grandma, including a project that was started.
Back to the title of the post - when we make the long car trip from home to the Superior condo, I have a substantial amount of dedicated time to keep my hands busy knitting. When it's an easy pattern to follow, I can keep conversation going with my sweet driver and just knit the miles away (minus the frequent interruptions from the back seat).
