There is something I want to learn to do.
Anything you want to learn to do?
I want to learn to knit.
Sometimes I get lost in the yarn aisle and can’t resist.
This happened when I popped in to Joanne’s to get that tiny hole punch I needed for my Mother’s Day Banner.
I was just going to dash in for that…and ended up with a basket, ok a cart filled.
Soft, chunky skeins of yarn – so much potential – if only I knew how.
I will make the time to learn someday.
…I did try while I was living in NY during the height of the super model knitter craze. Did that happen everywhere? No, maybe just NYC. All those lanky lovelies knitting slouchy sweaters on the subway. Alas, I had briefcase in hand then so, the yarn fell away – too hard to balance.
Until I make the time, I find other uses for the yarn I buy for someday.
Easter Basket with Yarn & Twine
This time I made an Easter Basket filled with yarn.
I circled the skeins with burlap, fabric & twine.
Arranged them in a galvanized basket (also from Joanne’s 1/2 price)
Added some balls of twine, moss for texture
…and eggs for Easter.
Made a nest by circling rough twine around my hand & filling it with moss.
Easier Easter decor was never invented.
Well maybe tossing those plastic eggs on the ground is easier, but clearly not as charming!
So tell me what do you want to learn to do?
