I finally decided it was time to stop talking about it and just do it!
I picked the easiest hat Pattern I could find, went to the store and picked up supplies-size 13 knitting Needles and some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Yarn. A few hours later, my very first hat!
I talked one of my girls into modeling it for me.
So now I can say that I have moved on from scarves and dishcloths! Who knows maybe there are knitted socks in my future, yet.
The pattern I used was found at Lion Brand Yarn's website
