Gettin' Crafty

My lovely sister-in-law gave Funny a bunch of crafty things for her birthday last week.  One of them was a "learn to knit animals" thing.  Well, I inwardly groaned at the sight of it.  But I'm a good sport (mostly) and I decided to try to tackle it.


Um, what?
I've never knitted.  I used to crochet, because I'm simple like that.  I never wanted to knit because, well, I just didn't.  And thanks to a dear friend, I dodged the bullet.  My wonderful friend Jill agreed to help Funny with her crochet project, and even better, to help her learn to sew.  I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this makes Funny!  The girl lives to be crafty.

In exchange for teaching services, I get to watch Jill's youngest.  It's a good deal, if you ask me.

Here she is being ridiculous under our dinner table.

Here's Funny with her first knitting project.

No, I can't tell you what she's doing.  Casting on?  Is that a thing?


  1. Can you watch my kids so Jill can teach me to knit too?

  2. Do they want to learn to cross stitch, too? I think cross stitching should be babysitting both of my youngest, though.


I am very needy. I need your comments.
