Ok, I learned to knit about 6 months ago and have not tired of it yet. I can't make anything other than scarfs, cowls and shawls, but right now, I don't have much interest in anything else. What I like most about knitting, besides the relaxation factor and the ease of transport, is the amazing variety of yarns. This is not your grandmother's yarn. Look at this yarn...and this is just el cheapo from Joann's.
