I find knitting to be very soothing (except when I find an error several rows back and have to rip out my work) and I look forward to sitting down each evening and having something to occupy my hands other than chips or something worse!
Best of all are the new friends I've made at class. They are a fun loving group of ladies and we have a ball knitting and chatting among the yarn.
Today, I'm off to a class in ornamental garden design. Can spring be far behind?
