I saw Amy crocheting a beautiful blue scarf today… her fingers were moving faster than my eyes could blink! 😀 I hope to be that fast some day!!
The yarn was so soft and stretchy… I took to it immediately and went to Walmart & got the only red Homespun yarn available.
Lion Brand - Homespun Yarn #375 Candy Apple
I began knitting the scarf in garter stitch, casting on 16 stitches and knit to the end of the yarn which came up to 6 feet long! Here is Sanju Jaanu 😀 a dear friend, wearing my first knitting gift ever! Hope you loved it, hon! 😉
Sanjeeda wearing my first knitted gift : a red scarf 😀
The feel & touch of this yarn is soooooo soft and snuggly warm! I think I’m going to knit a blue one for myself now! 😀
Met her first time… last year… as my daughter’s Girl Scout Leader. 😀
And as time passed by, I got to learn about the many facets of this fascinating & phenomenal Amy Brandon! 😉
From what I’ve seen & what I know… she’s a wonderful wife & a great mom!!
She has inspired & encouraged my family & me to consider & pursue homeschooling for my daughter Nazu.
She is enormously talented… how many women can use sewing, quilting, knitting & crocheting needles so effortlessly & flawlessly??? 😯
She has a huge heart (and I don’t mean just literally!) 😛 Really, her generosity and her kindness totally baffle me & humble me… I know it was/is hard for her to understand me, my moods & my mind initially, but she has always looked beyond my faults & mistakes and never ever treated me with the slightest discriminatory attitude. (Do remember that I live in Texas 😆 )
There were times when I so badly needed to vent… she heard me out with patience and sent me home with her “purls” of wisdom 😉
I feel so thankful to her for all of that…
But today, I’m even more grateful to her… because this day she will don on another role … and become my knitting teacher!!! Yay 😀 😀 😀
Thanx Amy, I owe you, Big Time, babe!! 😉
And I pray, that God protects your sanity every minute you are with me 😆 amen!!!
It’s no secret that I’ve always been fascinated by the craft of knitting.
Innumerable times I’ve stopped in my tracks, and with complete awe & admiration, stared at these women clicking away their knitting needles so effortlessly.
I’ve even pestered one of my favorite knitters to teach me very early on. Guess who??? 😉 Yup!!
Sept 2001, on my first visit to Canada, my cousin Abiha gave me a few lessons on “knit & purl” which were forgotten faster than the time I took to learn them! 😀
I luv’d the idea of pulling a thread this way n that… and being able to create something that was wearable! (my definition of knitting, haa!)
Anyhow, I didn’t go beyond this, back then. (Abiha, recognize it?! 😉 ) And recently I found this pink yarn buried deep down in my yarn basket and lost somewhere in the darkness of my closet.
Yes, it’s time I made good use of it! 😀
