Crafty Dad Conquers Two Pointy Sticks and Some String!

What a difference a day makes. Old yarn. New needles -- I gotta’ new attitude. I finally got the hang of it. I actually formed knit stitches. Can I get a “Woot Woot”? (Or a “Gee dummy, it’s about time!?”)

Yarn tension and proper form is another story. But I have great confidence that I’ll conquer those battles very soon. The weekend is approaching and hopefully I’ll have some quality time to work out the kinks.

In other news: I received two packages yesterday (from eBay purchases). I am the proud owner of eighteen more crochet hooks (many in original blister packs) and twenty-some knitting needles (metal, plastic and circular). They are all in VERY good condition. Woo Hoo…..Crafty Dad strikes again.

Ok, you're addicted already. Once you've started on the eBay thing for fiber supplies, a spinning wheel is NOT far behind. The sings are there. I know, you haven't even made a scarf, but I KNOW those signs...
Pity the wife...
