One of my goals for 2009 was to try knitting again. My mother-in-law taught me to knit and purl a few years ago. I made a few awkward scarves and never really gave myself the time to learn how to read a pattern. It slipped away from me. Then I got into crochet. It was during a time in my life when I was in serious need of a distraction so I got into it in a serious way.
