Old Lady Alert, Part II

This weekend, I learned to knit! And don't I sound excited! That is because I am getting old and now like things like knitting! Next, bingo!

Just kidding. Really, I know knitting is all hott (tm Paris Hilton) these days, but do any of us young 'uns not have the stigma in the back of our minds as we're doing it? I learned to knit with my group of crafty friends who meet once a month, and at one point, I found myself sitting in a rocking chair, knitting and a cat was in my lap. My future?

Anyway, I am digging knitting regardless of the stereotype or the fact that I am not very good. You not only get the meditative effect from repetitive motion, but you're creating something as well.

This Christmas, scarves for everyone!
