Happy Wednesday! I have been diving head first into the world of knitting this week and am almost done my second hat (it’s a baby hat, but it still counts, right?) I am having so much fun and can see this developing into a love similar to my love of sewing. Trying a new craft and starting from the beginning was intimidating, but I am so glad I gave knitting another shot. Have you ever discovered a new craft and been surprised by how much you love it? What a wonderful feeling!
