There are things on my knitting needles again! There is a relief there in those words that might be difficult for a non-knitter to understand. With all the turmoil of moving, with all the changes going on in the past year, plus having a new puppy in the house, the desire to knit has been strong, but the actual knitting has been non-existent until now.

Not only has knitting begun on a scarf for myself – I have also ordered some yarn for a Christmas present to make. Since I am not sure if the person I am knitting for reads this blog or not, I am just going to leave it at that. Any time I am waiting on yarn to come in gives me the same sensation I used to have as a child waiting for the mail and a  package. The thrill of it is still the same. Opening a package of yarn, or going to a yarn store and looking through said yarn is just like opening presents on Christmas morning! Yes, yarn is just that special to knitters.
