Who knew?

So yesterday while over at the in-laws house for Easter dinner. My mom in law was showing me some of her knitting and her and my sister in law talked me into trying it. I've never done this kind of thing before. Thought it would be too complicated for me and was sort of afraid of it. But Candy showed me how to do it and I caught on pretty quick. This is how much I've gotten done since last night. Not to bad huh? I think this is going to be a runner for our dining room table.... its too small for a throw. Who knew that I could and would like doing this?! lol. Here's a picture of it close up so you can see the details....


I've also started a wall hanging that I am quilting by hand. Its a very slow process and I havent gotten much accomplished with it. Once I get a little more done, I'll take a few pics and share :)
