In my previous post i have introduced to u one of my favourite hang outs places the Hobby-Lobby. On one of our strolls, my mother-in-law wanted to check out the "wool" section..
Other than the knitting i did (after much swearing), during my S.U.P.W periods in school, i never even used to think abt it..(Some Useful Periods Wasted is wat we called them..N i don't remember the correct expansion for the Acronym ;-))
However, this is wat elders say..life changes.. N here i was staring at different colors n shapes n prices of yarn!!!I must say the collection was humongous!!! N to add to it there was an after winter clearance sale.. N so many ladies were flocking around.. N among them was one lady who looked very kind and sweet n gave us a polite smile.. I was simply lingering around feeling the soft mass of fabric n admiring the color combinations n glancing at the design patterns in display.. After we had made our selection of colors n texture n all, we moved on to buy crotchet needles..they were also displayed in various size n colors n each labelled with codes n numbers..(All Greek n Latin to me!! now Spanish too ;-)) Now came the million dollar question.. which size to buy?? that's when we thought of approaching our gentle old lady who was still roaming around..
She was more than willing to help us.. Not only did she tell us the basics of crotchet, she also lead us to a shelf full of delicious looking (pl don't mind my adjectives.. sumthings happened to me today) yarns on sale for a mere 99 cents!! Now these looked really tempting and that's when a teeny weeny wish sprouted in my mind.. Y not learn to knit?? The cause for this noble thought to arise is that the kinda yarn on sale was just perfect for the kinda scarf that i had been wishing for ;-)
Not only that our sweet old lady showed us her cart full of knitting yarns n the half finished scarf she was working on.. n it looked really pretty...A girl as i am, the need for a pretty scarf just made me plunge out from all my laziness n now i have learnt single n double crotchet.. N next winter if i am still around, (or rather u r still visiting my page)u can hear abt the new white scarf that I've knitted :-)
